What is a Timing Belt and why is it important?

What is a timing belt? The timing belt is crucial to proper engine operation; the timing belt maintains synchronization and control of the timing components. Components such as the crank(s), camshaft(s) and operation of the valves to allow the proper amount of intake air and exhaust gas flow. Why is replacing your timing belt useful? The timing belt is a rubber product and resides in a sensitive environment where it experiences extreme heat cycles. The extreme heat cycles and constant tension. The heat cycles and tension cause the rubber to dry out and stretch. If this happens it can be catastrophic and cause complete engine failure. It comes highly recommended that one follows factory recommended maintenance intervals because if you wait too long you may wind up in a bad situation with an even bigger problem. We consider this preventative maintenance, replacing parts because it’s a problem.
