Servicing Timing Belts for All Makes and Models of Vehicles

A timing belt is a flexible, continuous toothed strap—a simple, but critical component of your vehicle’s engine. The timing belt maintains the timing of the crankshaft and camshaft rotation, causing the intake and exhaust valve operate correctly on every stroke of the engines combustion cylinders. In some configurations, the timing belt also operates additional parts like the coolant pump, oil pump and water pump.

Remember, timing belts have to be replaced according to the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended mileage or years in use. If a timing belt is not replaced during the recommended schedule, it could cause—in some types of engines—complete engine breakdown or loss of the engine. Some manufacturers recommend timing belt replacement after 30,000 to 50,000 miles. It is important to check your owner’s manual for the maintenance schedule for the timing belt and other components of your vehicle.
