Why replace my cam chain tensioner gaskets during timing belt service? From our experience most cam chain tensioner gaskets begin leaking around 70,000-100,000 miles. Many people perform a timing belt service only to experience cam chain tensioner gasket leaks shortly after. During the cam chain tensioner gasket replacement nearly all of the timing belt disassembly and assembly procedures are needed in order the properly and effectively service and replace the cam chain tensioner gakets. Changing your cam chain tensioner gaskets during your timing belt service can save you several hours of shop labor cost.
