The timing belt plays a key part in proper engine function. Responsible for the timing of the combustion process within the engine, making sure the valves are opening and closing with precision. When a timing belt slips or breaks, the engine will not run. That’s how crucial timing belt maintenance and replacement is to your vehicle. In the worst case scenario, a malfunctioning or broken timing belt can result in a valve opening at the wrong time and colliding with a piston. The end result? Bent valves and possibly greater damage to the cylinder head, costing up to several thousand dollars to repair. A timing belt needs to be replaced before trouble strikes. Check your owner’s manual for recommended mileage standards, and be sure to mark your calendar in order to avoid costly problems down the road.
