What is the Purpose of a Timing Belt?

At Betterway Sales & Leasing, we want you to understand how your vehicle functions so that you can keep it in optimal condition. A timing belt is a critical component that helps the camshaft and crankshaft turn properly. When a timing belt malfunctions, it can cause the engine to shut down and can result in costly repairs if damage occurs to the engine. Read further to learn more about your vehicle's timing belt.

To keep your car running smoothly, its timing belt should be serviced on a regular schedule. Although you should reference your vehicle's manual, most automobiles will need to have their timing belts changed every 100,000 to 160,000 kilometers. In most cases, when the timing belt is changed, the vehicle's pulleys and tensioners will be replaced as well.

Get in touch with our service center to have your timing belt checked.
