Timing Belt

Why Is It Important to Replace My Timing Belt?

A timing belt is a vital part of the car's engine that enables the crankshaft to rotate promptly, allowing other components such as the valves and pistons to work in synchronized harmony. But when the belt breaks, it could lead to catastrophic damage to the engine and its parts, as well as to an extremely costly repair bill. That's why it is important to have the belt inspected and replaced if needed before this occurs.

Benefits of a New Timing Belt

  • You should experience improvement in acceleration and horsepower
  • Improved engine operation should show an increase in your fuel economy
  • Prevents severe engine damage resulting from a broken belt, potentially saving you thousands of dollars in future repair costs
  • Adds years to the operating life of your vehicle

Effects of Failing to Replace Timing Belts

Failure to replace your vehicle's old or worn timing belt can result in significant issues. When a timing belt breaks, it could lead to severe damage to the pistons, valves, and the internal walls of the cylinders. And damage to the camshaft is the worst-case scenario because it is very expensive to repair. So replacing an old belt is the best preventive measure you can take to avoid catastrophic engine damage and costly future repairs.
