Timing Belt

Why Is It Important to Replace My Timing Belt?

A timing belt is a toothed rubber belt that joins the crankshaft to the camshaft(s). It synchronizes the opening and closing of the valves so that they are in position with the pistons. This is what controls the engine's intake and exhaust valves. The timing belt is a crucial mechanical element in the essential operation of a vehicle.

Replacing the timing belt is customarily based on age and mileage. Usually, 90,000-100,000 miles equates to approximately 6-10 years. However, for accurate data, check the owner's manual as it contains the manufacturer's recommendations on how to maintain your timing belt and when to replace it. In case this information is not explicit, please call Vandergriff Honda, and we will advise you accordingly.

Replacing your timing belt is very important because it ensures that your car is healthy, operates impeccably, and gives it a powerful acceleration at all times. More so, it saves you various additional costs. For instance, when the timing belt breaks, it causes damage to the pistons, valves, and the engine. Fixing these other parts is way more expensive than replacing the timing belt, which reduces your auto repair cost. It also saves you on fuel costs because the valves will produce great combustion. Nevertheless, when you neglect to replace your timing valve at the recommended time, you are opening up yourself to many mechanical problems such as broken or bent valves, complete engine failure, damage to the piston, camshaft, or cylinder wall.
