What is a Timing Belt and why is it so important?

A timing belt is a toothed belt that connects the camshafts or shafts to the crankshaft, thus timing the top and bottom of the engine. The camshafts turn at exactly half the speed of the crankshaft to time the valve operation to the piston operation. If the belt was to fail it can cause considerable damage to the engine resulting in costly bills for you.

Replacing Timing Belts

Timing belts must be replaced at the manufactures recommended distance and/or time interval to prevent them from failing. It is also recommended that the tensioner and roller bearings are replaced at the same time and in some cases the water pump.
