The Functions of the Timing Belt

A key component of your engine is the timing belt. The timing belt is designed to coordinate the operations of a pair of vital elements in your engine. The timing belt is responsible for the coordination of the camshaft and crankshaft. The camshaft itself opens and closes the engine valves. The crankshaft manages the operation of the pistons as well.

You must make certain that your timing belt remains in prime condition. If a worn timing belt breaks, the snapping of it can cause serious and expensive damage to an engine. Your owner's manual sets forth the recommended timeframe for the replacement of your timing belt.
