Local Camshaft Repair

A car engine operates by introducing a mixture of air and fuel to the combustion chamber, which is then set off by a spark. The resulting miniature explosion causes the pistons to move, which then turns the drive-producing crankshaft.

Next, the exhaust gases need to be removed from the combustion chamber so the next round can begin. This is done using valves that are opened and closed by the engine’s camshaft. This particular part has several unique lobes that push against the valves to open them at carefully selected times. Then valve springs guide the valves back to their close position to complete the process.

Some engines use only one camshaft. Some have two. In either case, they’re responsible for operating the valves and control compression. If your camshaft needs repaired, contact us for immediate service!

Everything You Need To Know About Camshafts

How Do Camshafts Work?

A camshaft is made from billet or cast steel and machined to exacting standards for accuracy. Highly trained machinists will use CNC machines or lathes to grind the proper profile into the various lobes.

The shaft part itself spins at very high speeds while running, but the essential element is the cam itself and its shape. The cam profile is designed so that the valves operate in sync with the intake and extraction processes and allow them to open wider when running at very high speeds.

The setup of the camshaft can depend on the size of the engine and its performance expectations. For the camshaft system to operate correctly, the speed of rotation of the camshaft must be carefully controlled, linked to the crankshaft via a gear setup or timing chain to keep everything coordinated.

When Camshafts Fail

The surest sign of camshaft failure is poor engine performance. You may experience stuttering or hear unexpected noises from the engine. There may be improper lubrication at work, excessive end play, or impacts from other moving parts of the engine while running.

When this happens, take your vehicle in as soon as possible to have these symptoms checked out. Even if it’s not the camshaft, it could be something else equally serious. If you put this off too long, you’ll end up experiencing considerable damage to the internal components of your engine.
