The Ins and Outs of Your Timing Belt

The timing belt in your engine plays a crucial role in the running of your vehicle. The timing belt is responsible for synchronizing the operations of the crankshaft and the camshaft. The crankshaft itself operates the engine's pistons. The camshaft directs the opening and closing of an engine's valves.

The timing belt must be in top condition in order for an engine to run well. If a timing belt wears to the point that it breaks, serious damage can be done to your engine necessitating costly remediation. You need to follow your vehicle's owner guide to determine when the timing belt must be replaced.
