Timing Belt: What is It Used For?

What is the timing belt on your vehicle any good for in the first place? This is the age-old question that people ask themselves when they hear that they may need to replace one. Many people only hear about a timing belt for the first time when they get word that it needs to be replaced.

The timing belt actually is a critical element of the vehicle, and the mechanic may well be telling the truth when he or she says that it needs to be replaced. A timing belt only lasts about 100,000 miles before it requires replacement. Therefore, trust what the mechanic has to say about it because they are probably not lying. You need to get it checked out.

The timing belt controls the timing between the crankshaft and the camshaft. Those are two elements that serve a very important role and allow the valves of your vehicle to work how they are supposed to. Do not ignore this element of your vehicle care.
