The Purpose of a Timing Belt

One of the factors that a vehicle needs in order to work is for everything to work in good timing. One thing that can help with that is the timing belt. The timing belt has been put in place in order to keep the crankshaft and camshaft working in a synchronized rate.

The reason that these components need to work at a synchronized rate is that once they lose sync, then they are going to damage your engine which can cause the need for a costly repair. Your engine will stop all of a sudden. You won't be able to start it up.

Knowing that the functionality of the engine is very important, you have to make sure that your belt is changed out. One thing you can do is figure out the recommended frequency of changing your timing belt so that you can avoid a major breakdown.
