What is it?

The timing belt is a crucial component of any engine with a timing chain. Its function is to keep the crank and camshafts in sync so that the engine functions properly.

What does it do?

A timing belt is a long, thin belt that is used to connect the crankshaft to the camshaft in an engine. The timing belt is responsible for ensuring that the valves open and close at the correct times, which is essential for the engine to run properly. Timing belts are made from high-strength synthetic materials, and they are designed to withstand extreme temperatures and loads.

Typical Wear and Tear

The typical wear and tear on a timing belt includes stretching, fraying, and cracking. Over time, these problems can lead to the belt slipping or breaking entirely, causing serious damage to the engine. Excessive heat can also cause a timing belt to break down prematurely.
