Keep Your Engine Well-Synchronized With Durable Timing Belts
A timing belt is a toothed strip of rubber that connects the engine crankshaft to one or more camshafts. The rubber belt synchronizes the position of the camshaft with the crankshaft, causing the engine valves to open and close at the desired timing in relation to the position of the engine pistons. A faulty timing belt can cause a series of problems to an engine and usually starts with unusual, rattling engine noises. Since these belts are expected to last up to five years or 60,000 miles, it will eventually show signs of wear and tear. It will have missing chunks and warped notches or become misaligned due to excessive heat and vibrations. It is vital to replace the timing belt of your engine once it starts to show the symptoms mentioned above to ensure that the engine components of your car run smoothly and avoid engine malfunctions.

Frequently Asked Questions: Timing Belt
What does a timing belt do?
A timing belt assists the proper movement of your camshafts. The belt ensures that the opening and closing of the valves happen at the right time. These timing belts have teeth that keep your camshaft in sync with your crankshaft as both components turn.
How long does a timing belt last?
Timing belts can last between 60,000 to 100,000 miles. However, your automaker might give you a different interval for belt replacement on your vehicle. We advise reading your owner’s manual to see when you can change your timing belt according to its intended specs.
How do I check a timing belt?
You can inspect your timing belt in any of the following ways:
Remove the belt cover on your engine.
Check if the belt has worn edges or visible damage.
You can also inspect for a shiny or marbled belt with cracked rubber parts.
Test your belt to see how it moves.
If you see your belt is flexing as it spins, you should replace it right away.
When should I change a timing belt?
As we’ve mentioned, timing belt replacement should be done every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. But you can also get a new belt if your car shows any of the following symptoms:
Reduced engine power
Overheating & hard starts
Squealing or rubbing noises
A ticking engine
An illuminated check engine light
