What The Timing Belt Does and Why It's Important to Maintain

Proper maintenance is vital to your vehicle's performance and how long it will last you, and knowing your vehicle and its components are part of understanding how to properly maintain it. So today, we're going to be discussing the timing belt.

What is a timing belt? This is an important part of your vehicle with the responsibility of keeping its camshaft and crankshaft turning in sync, thus keeping your engine running. If the timing belt isn't doing its job, then the vehicle can shut down at any moment, even while you are driving it. This could cause engine damage if it isn't taken care of right away. Changing your timing belt according to your vehicle's regular maintenance schedule is critical to keep your vehicle running properly and to avoid costly repairs to your engine.
