Replacing a timing belt is a complex, but necessary process for keeping your vehicle running properly. You’ve probably heard of a timing belt before, or at least heard you needed it replaced, but do you know what it really does? At Chelsie’s Automotive, we’re happy to help you with all of your timing belt needs in Austin, TX, including explaining to you what they are!
What does my car’s timing belt do?
Your timing belt helps keep your car’s crankshaft and camshaft working together. The crankshaft converts the energy from the pistons that is required to turn your wheels. The camshaft controls the engine’s valves that allow air and fuel to flow in and out. Without a properly functioning timing belt, your valves and pistons would collide, causing potentially irreversible engine damage.
When does my timing belt need to be replaced?
Timing belts usually need to be replaced every 60,000 – 100,000 miles. Failure to replace a broken or worn timing belt can result in severe engine damage or even complete engine failure.
