Cam Housings, also called cam towers, contain the bearings for the camshaft. The cam housings also supports the rocker arms. It is usually bolted to the cylinder head. The camshaft is used to control the opening and closing the poppet valves in the cylinder head. The position of the camshaft with respect to the other parts of the engine is a vital factor to consider, and as such, the cam housings are designed to accommodate and secure the cam and other parts within.
The housing can become loose or spring a leak due to improper mounting of the housing. A leaky cam housing will cause the oil to leak over the exhaust manifold. This will cause your exhaust smoke to bear a foul smell or can, in very rare cases, cause the oil to ignite. You should check the bolts in the cam housing regularly to ensure that it is not loose or misaligned. At Buy Auto Parts we stock a wide variety of cam housings for every car make and model.
