Snapped or Broken Cam Belt

Snapped or Broken Cam Belts

At ® we buy cars with all sorts of problems, but a problem with the timing belt (or cam belt) failing is one of the most common reasons why motorists look to us to buy their cars.

Have you suffered engine damage caused by a broken or snapped cam belt?

The cam belt is an integral part of a car’s engine. It connects the crankshaft to the camshaft, and the camshaft is responsible for opening and closing the engine’s valves. Unfortunately, as you’ve probably discovered, when a cam belt breaks, there’s usually a whole range of things that break along with it.

With the cam belt broken the pistons can hit the valves, breaking or bending them out of shape. And if a cam belt breaks while you’re driving, it can destroy an engine, with the cost of a replacement often exceeding the value of the car.

If you’re unable to afford the cost of a replacement you might have tried to sell your damaged car, but this too is often tricky – there just aren’t many people out there looking to buy cars with broken engines.

At ® we know how difficult it can be to generate any kind of buyer interest in your broken-down motor.

Paying cash for all kinds of broken and damaged cars, we take all the hassle out of selling your broken car. We’ll settle those garage bills and even cover any outstanding finance on all cars younger than 10 years.
