One component you really need to concentrate on is the camshaft, and we have all the camshaft components you need. When something breaks on your vehicle and leaves you stranded on the side of the road, you want to make sure you have access to all the right parts so you can fix the problem properly and the continue on with your life. So CARiD has all the components to give you the opportunity to find the perfect part straight away.

Your camshaft performs a number of different functions and is integral to causing the engine to provide power to the wheels. It moves around and around, opening and closing valves at exactly the right time so they can allow air and fuel into the cylinders where explosions become power. If the timing is out, then you can run into serious problems, and any failed components can cause the timing to quickly fall away until these problems occur. This makes it important to have the right camshaft components and to ensure they are replaced if they break.

There are a large number of components inside such a complex part as the camshaft, and each one is important. For instance, the camshaft thrust button is designed to prevent ''camshaft walk,'' and it sits at one end of the camshaft to remove any gaps. The camshaft gaskets are required to make sure lubricants stay within the system, rather than leaking somewhere they should not, so your camshaft is not overheating and exploding because of the extra friction. Camshaft bolts and lock plats will prevent the camshaft from moving in any unnecessary directions, and a bushing kit will keep your camshaft at its best.

When one or more of the components inside your camshaft is beginning to break down, or has broken down completely, your camshaft will no longer be working with the efficiency or perfect timing it is supposed to operate with. Components can break easily because they are under serious pressure and friction, and you can see this when you look at things like the camshaft thrust button or the gaskets. Examples of common problems include the gaskets leaking or breaking down or the camshaft thrust button wearing down to a nub after many miles of very hard service.

If one or more of these problems do happen, you will know by the way the vehicle drives. If it feels as though there is a lot less power than there is supposed to be, or the ignition timing slips and you start to notice the engine is misfiring or otherwise not running properly, then you should be looking at camshaft components. Of course, regular maintenance is also important which means checking to see whether parts have worn down or whether gaskets are leaking. A little work now could save you lots of time in the future.

Does your ride have timing gears, a timing belt, or a timing chain? Is one better than the other? And perhaps most importantly, do I need to be concerned about the recommendation to replace the timing belt at a certain mileage interval? Welcome to our discussion of "engine timing".
Internal combustion engines are extremely complex and feature a wide array of components that rotate, move up and down, pump, seal, or remain stationary. When repairing or rebuilding your engine, you will come across many different terms when referencing repair manuals and ordering parts. We know it can be confusing, especially when the repair is complex. Even if...
