Timing Belt

Why Is It Important to Replace My Timing Belt?

Your car relies on several properly working parts to perform at its best and to last a long time. One of the most critical components in your vehicle is the timing belt. The timing belt works with the car's mechanical system to keep it working properly. The timing belt is individually responsible for regulating the camshaft and the crankshaft. The camshaft controls the valves, while the crankshaft controls the pistons. The valves have the vital job of ensuring that the valves open and close at precisely the right time to let air enter the engine. If the timing belt is not working correctly, the pistons can collide with the valves and cause significant damage. Since you won't notice any warning signs that your car's timing belt is about to break, experts recommend replacing the timing belt at approximately the time recommended in your owner's manual, which ranges from 60,000 miles to 100,000 miles. That mileage translates to roughly one timing belt change every four or five years. If the timing belt slips or breaks, you may face significant engine damage and extensive repairs.
