What is the Purpose of a Timing Belt?

Our team at Precision Acura of Princeton tries to keep our consumers informed about the components of their vehicles to ensure they run smoothly. One important component that makes up your vehicle is a timing belt.

A timing belt keeps your vehicle's camshaft and crankshaft turning at an optimal rate. If your timing belt fails, your vehicle will suddenly stop, which can be potentially dangerous. In addition, a damaged timing belt can also cause the engine to become severely damaged and lead to costly repairs.

It is vital to have your timing belt changed on a regular basis. If you don't know how often your timing belt needs to be changed, you can check your owner's manual to see what the manufacturer recommends. You can also speak with a service technician at our service center to find out how often it should be changed. When you have your timing belt changed, your tensioners and pulleys may also be changed as well.
