Learn More about Your Vehicle’s Timing Belt

Have you ever wondered what belts hold your car together? The timing part is an essential part of making sure your engine works properly. It moves the valves and camshaft in sync, as well as controls some other operations like the water pump. If your timing belt starts to go bad, you may hear a chattering noise. However, many report that they never heard any issues before the timing belt went bad.

When should you get it checked? In older vehicles, you should get a timing belt check at 60,000 miles. For newer vehicles, you can probably wait longer and get your belt checked at 100,000 miles. In some cases, a timing belt may break from wear and tear. Located at the front of the engine, you typically need a professional mechanic to replace a timing belt so that you get the right part and size of your vehicle.
