Timing Belt

Why Is It Important to Replace My Timing Belt?

You may be aware of a part on your car called the timing belt. But what exactly does it do, and why is it important? The timing belt is part of your car's mechanical system. It works alongside the engine, in particular, to keep your vehicle running smoothly. The timing belt is responsible for regulating the internal combustion within an engine. The timing belt enables the camshaft, which regulates the valves opening and closing, and the crankshaft, a component that controls the pistons, works correctly. If the valves do not open and close as they should, your engine may not receive enough air. If that happens, the engine's performance can suffer, and it can also impact fuel economy. The pistons also rely on the timing belt to operate independently of the valves. If the timing belt slips or breaks, the valves are no longer synchronized with the pistons.

Consequently, the components collide with each other, which can eventually break the valves. In the end, you're left with significant repair bills. Ideally, you should aim to have your timing belt replaced between 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Be sure to check the owner's manual to find out when your specific make and model of the vehicle needs to have the timing belt checked.
