Information - Cam kit

Camshaft is the main component of the VVEL that is used to synchronize intake and output, as well as strokes of its work. Today, almost in all modern automobile engines, the camshaft is located at the top of the cylinder head and is connected with a sprocket of the crankshaft, pulley, chain or timing belt. This allows it to rotate with a frequency twice smaller than the previous location version allowed. In short, the camshaft is the brain of the car engine that determines the character of the engine operation, namely the lifting speed and duration of valves opening.

Due to the fact that the cams match the number of both inlet and exhaust valves of the automobile engines, individual cam opens the valve, runs over the pusher lever and "runs away" from it. After this the return spring closes the valve. There are several configurations of the cylinders in the engine. In-line configuration has one pair of valves and one camshaft. V-shaped and opposite include one camshaft in the vee of the engine or two camshafts in the semiblock. The most serious problem with this part is sticking of valves. The reason for this is use of substandard fuel or problems with the valve springs. Also common causes of failure are malfunction of the hydraulic compressors and thermal gap.

What is necessary to know about camshaft replacement: service life, common defects and their signs, tips and recommendations

The camshaft has no determined life span limit.

The component is replaced if necessary.

As a rule, the unit is subject to replacement in case if cam bearing journals and cam lobes are greatly worn out, there are scores and scratches on them, the surface under the gland sealing is worn away, holes for fasteners and pins are defective and keyways are damaged. The camshaft is also to be replaced if it is deformed or cracked.

Necessity of camshaft check is determined by unusual sounds such as noise and metal knocking from under the bonnet in different engine operation modes, too low pressure in the lubrication system and also power unit capacity loss.

Camshaft diagnostics should be performed at a service station because it may require demounting in order to find defects and estimate damage level. With the help of special equipment specialists estimate value of journals radial runout and also check the camshaft for deformation.

For camshaft replacement contact a service station because its installation and demounting usually requires removal of the cylinder head unit. In order to avoid other damages you need to thoroughly check the fuel, lubrication and cooling systems, replace working fluids, clean the cylinder head. In case of heavy wear it is recommended to install new rocker arms. In this case buying the camshaft kit is the most advantageous. After new component installation you should adjust timing system and auxiliary components.
