How a Timing Belt Works with Your Engine

A modern automobile engine requires multiple components to work together so you get to your destination safely and efficiently.

One of those critical parts is the timing belt. It connects the crankshaft, which handles the pistons of your engine, to the camshaft, which opens and closes the valves synchronously so your engine runs properly. Using a timing belt allows automotive engineers to position the camshaft further from the crankshaft, allowing for greater flexibility in designing power components.

You need to change your timing belt as often as is specified in the operations manual of your vehicle. This is typically every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Do not wait for it to snap. Not only will your engine fail to operate properly but you risk expensive and extensive damage to its components. Contact Priority Honda Huntersville to schedule inspection and service.
