Why does my cambelt have to be changed?

The cambelt, or timing belt, is made of rubber and is wrapped around several engine components in your car. These components include the camshaft, crankshaft and water pump. 

The cambelt controls the timing of the engine valves and pistons, making sure they don’t collide with each other. If the cambelt is allowed to fray, snap or simply work its way off the rollers, the pistons can collide with the valves, resulting in an expensive repair bill.
