Timing Belt Replacement

If you’re vehicle has more than 70,000 miles on it, there’s a hidden danger you should know about. It’s a fairly small part that’s wearing out, and if it breaks before you replace it, it could destroy your engine. We’re talking about the timing belt.

On most modern cars there is two kinds of belts; timing belts and accessory drive belts. While they are similiar in nature to make up and what they do, they are very different.

Older vehicles use to have timing chains, but newer modern cars have changed to timing belts because they are much lighter, quieter, and more efficient. The timing belt is responsible for making sure the engine’s crankshaft, pistons, and valves operating insync or in time. (Hence the term timing belt.)
