What Should I Know about My Timing Belt?

The timing belt enables the engine to run by connecting the crankshaft to the camshaft. This connection results in the synchronized timing needed to run an engine. If the belt becomes worn or cracked, it could snap and cause extensive damage to the vehicle's engine resulting in costly repairs and possibly replacing the engine.

Your vehicles owner’s manual will have information on when to replace the vehicles timing belt. The general replacement of a timing belt is from 60,0000 to 100,000 miles, but if you notice high-pitch noise from the engine stop and check the timing belt immediately.

Always have your timing belt checked and replaced when needed to prevent your vehicle from shutting down at the worst possible time. For a complete inspection of your timing belt, pay a visit to the expert technicians in our service center at Hawk Ford of St. Charles.
