The timing belt is made of a strong rubber material which includes cords that are nylon-reinforced.
It is located in front of the vehicle’s engine and links the camshaft to the crankshaft which manages the pistons of the engine. As for the camshaft, it is responsible for opening the values and closing the valves. Overall, the timing belt makes sure the engine performs the best that it can by controlling the timing of the crankshaft and camshaft. While the timing belt is moving inside the motor, it is placed under lots of pressure and tends to wear out quickly for this reason. So, you will have to replace the timing belt very often. Replacing the belt as soon as necessary, could prevent the engine from permanent damage.
The following indications may occur if you have a broken or worn out timing belt:
Once you experience one or more of these symptoms, have one of our auto technician or mechanic inspect the timing belt and then replace it if necessary.
How the Job is Done
Our mechanic needs to gain entry to the timing cover of the engine by removing various accessories. After removing the cover, he will analyse the timing belt and its pulleys to see what is needed for replacement. At this point, he will begin to remove the timing belt and then replace it with a new one. The pulleys, tensioners, and water pump will likely be replaced if he feels it is important to do so.
Once everything is replaced, he will put the timing cover back on and any other parts that were removed. Now that it is all put back together, it can be tested with the start of the engine.
