What is a Timing Belt?

The timing belt is one of those critical aspects of the engine’s operation that can get overlooked when it comes to maintenance. It’s housed in its own compartment, but it plays an integral part with both the cam and crankshaft’s ability to function, and in turn, other parts that rely on them.

The crankshaft provides needed power from the engine to other parts, like the clutch. The camshaft receives that power and operates the engine’s valves with it. When you hear a misfire from your engine as you drive, it may be the result of the two parts not working together as they should.

It’s recommended to follow the vehicle manufacturer’s guidelines for changing the timing belt. It is a crucial component that allows your vehicle to run.
