What is a timing belt anyway?
A timing belt or timing chain is a critical component of any internal combustion engine. The timing belt helps the engine's valves open and close at the correct time to help facilitate the engine's function. As with all components, a timing belt will eventually crack or break, which can cause major engine damage.
Regular maintenance and inspection is important to prevent the timing belt from breaking and damaging other engine components. During the timing belt replacement, the water pump is usually replaced at the same time to minimize the labor cost of replacing the water pump separately.
As always, it is important to follow your vehicle maintenance schedule for all repairs and inspections to get the longest life and most enjoyment out of your car.
