What is a Timing Belt?

If you want to keep your vehicle's engine running well, then you need to have certain components replaced on a regular basis. A timing belt plays a vital role in how your engine functions because it keeps the camshaft and crankshaft turning properly.

When a worn timing belt snaps, it can cause your engine to suddenly stop. This can be dangerous if you're in traffic, and it can also cause significant damage to your engine. Interface engines are at risk of broken pistons and bent intake valves if the timing belt snaps without warning. Cars with non-interface engines won't have issues with the pistons or intake valves.

Your vehicle's manual should tell you how often your timing belt needs changing. If it doesn't, you can have your timing belt looked at by one of our technicians. Most of the time, manufacturers suggest having a vehicle's timing belt changed between 60,000 to 100,000 miles.
