The Importance of Your Time Belt

While a timing belt may seem like something small, it plays a crucial role in the proper operation of your engine. A timing belt synchronizes the workings of the camshaft and the crankshaft in order to the engine to run at all. The camshaft opens and closes engine valves. The crankshaft coordinates the operation of the pistons.

One crucial area of vehicle service is making certain a timing belt is in prime condition. An owner's manual recommends when a timing belt should be replaced. In addition, you should have the timing belt inspected regularly to ensure it is not overly worn. A timing belt that wears and snaps or breaks can cause tremendous damage to an engine.
