The fan belt drives the fan, water pump, alternator, power steering, air conditioner and air pump... if the vehicle has all of these. The fan belt (often a serpentine belt) can slip without any real problem other than a little noise. The cam belt (timing belt) looks quite different and only drives the camshaft. The timing belt is designed to keep the camshaft and crankshaft in perfect synchronization. The timing belt has "lugs", or specially designed bumps in the belt that align with slots in the crankshaft pulley and the camshaft pulley. To protect the timing belt from grease, mud and other hazards, the timing belt is usually behind a fairly significant protective cover.
They are the same thing.
They are the same; it is just a different name.
The serpentine drive belt is on the outside of the engine and is used to drive the accessories ( such as air conditioning compressor , power steering etcetera ) The cam belt ( timing belt ) is protected by a plastic cover and connects the engine crankshaft with the engine camshaft or camshafts
The belt is made or rubber and drives the cam. A gear is just that, a gear which is a metal or plastic part with teeth on it that meshes with a belt or another gear.
I have never heard of a cam belt, but a timing belt does drive the cam or cams
Does BMW320i has cam belt?
It has a cam belt.
A cam belt spins the cams in the exact timing sequence for the valves to open, it is considered part of the internal engine workings and is absolutely necessary for operation. A fan belt operates the cooling fan and maybe other accesories such as power steering and air conditioning, it is on the outside of the motor.
Yes , a cam belt and a timing belt are the same thing
No Cam Shaft; therefore no Belt!
Timing belt/chain or cam belt/chain
It has a cam belt.
The cam belt drives the cam, keeping it in time. If the cam belt breaks, the engine not only will not run, but could be damaged. Make sure to change the belt at the recommended intervals.
if its a single overhead cam it has a belt and if its dual it has a chain
It will start if any belt is broken except the cam belt. If the cam belt is broken it will not start.
It does not have a drive belt. It has a serpentine belt and a cam belt on the V6. The 4 cylinder has a cam chain. The cam belt must be replaced every 105,000 miles on the V6.
NO. Drive belts drive the AC, Power Steering, Alternator, Waterpump, exe. Cam belt=timing belt.
when do i change a cam belt on a mazda 2
This is NOT an Interference engine. The water pump is driven by the cam belt so replace the water pump at the same time you replace the cam belt. Belt should be replaced at 105,000 miles.This is NOT an Interference engine. The water pump is driven by the cam belt so replace the water pump at the same time you replace the cam belt.
