Understanding Your Timing Belt

The timing belt in your vehicle is an essential part of that vehicle that makes it possible to drive. Without the timing belt, you would be in a position where you simply cannot drive the vehicle nor get anywhere.

What the timing belt does is synchronize the movements of the crankshaft and the camshaft so that valves may move on the vehicle in the exact timing and motion that they are supposed to. Anything short of that and you risk the vehicle stalling out entirely.

Responsible vehicle owners know that they must replace timing belts approximately every 100,000 miles on newer model year vehicles. Those who drive older vehicles may find themselves in need of replacement sooner than that. Regardless, it is always a good idea to keep an eye on the timing belt so that you don't end up doing something more costly to the vehicle in terms of damages.
