Timing Belt

Why Is It Important to Replace My Timing Belt?

The timing belt is a critical component of your car's engine. It works the same in all vehicles, regardless of vehicle type. The timing belt connects the camshaft and crankshaft, which control the valves and pistons in the engine. Two major tasks of the timing belt are to ensure that the valves open and close properly and to make sure that the valves and pistons do not collide. If the valves don't operate correctly, the engine may not get as much airflow as it should. This can reduce engine efficiency and fuel economy. If the timing belt breaks or slips out of place, the pistons may collide with the valves causing significant internal damage resulting in costly repairs. Preventative maintenance is vital because a timing belt can break or slip without warning. When it does, you can be left with a car that won't start or suddenly breaks down on the road. Most vehicles should have the timing belt replaced after about 60,000 miles or so. Refer to your owner's manual for the recommended interval for your vehicle.
