What is a Timing Belt and What Does it Do?
A timing belt is sometimes referred to as a timing chain or cam belt. It is a part within an internal combustion engine. The timing belt is responsible for synchronizing the rotation of the camshafts and crankshaft. The timing belt has teeth that rotate the camshaft in sync with the crankshaft. This process allows your engine valves to open and close at the appropriate times during each individual cylinder’s intake and exhaust strokes. The valves need to open at the correct time in order to allow fuel to enter the chamber. They also must close at the correct time to allow for compression. If this process fails to sync correctly fuel may not enter the chamber, or may escape through the exhaust valve. The result is a loss of power to the majority of the engine. On some engines, if your timing belt breaks, stretches out or becomes damaged it can cause the valves to remain open, causing the pistons to strike the valves resulting in extensive and expensive damage to the engine. Simple right? There is more. Some vehicles the timing belt will also run the injection pump, oil pump, and water pump. We understand, not everything involved with your vehicle is a simple fix and we are here to help when they are easy and when they are not. Your timing belt is one of the more complicated processes that sound like it should not be. However, it is not only essential to your engine’s performance but it will not start without it.
