Timing Belt: What is It And Why Does It Matter?

Why does the timing belt on your car matter? It is a fair question and one that is worthy of examination. You should know a bit more about the various details of your vehicle in order to know what to do when something goes wrong with any part of it.

The timing belt syncs up the literal timing of the interactions between the camshaft and the crankshaft. The point is to allow these two components to interact with one another to get the valves moving just right in the vehicle. It is a necessary element of operating the vehicle at all, and it would not be possible if the timing belt was inoperative or otherwise not working.

Make sure you take good care of the timing belt on your vehicle and get it checked out after roughly 100,000 miles. That is approximately how long one should last for you under normal conditions.
