Timing Belts

Timing belts deserve a page of there own, because they play a very important roll in your cars engine as they keep the camshaft and crankshaft in synch with each other. On interference engines if the belt jumps time or breaks severe engine damage will occur from the pistons hitting the valves that are open when they should be closed. When this happens the best case is only the valves get damaged this alone can cost over a thousand dollars but a piston can brake too at that point your looking at replacing your engine. Knowing this will help you avoid those type of costly repairs most car manufactures recommend replacing the belt every 95,000 to 100,000 miles their are some exceptions and on those car it can be as often as every 60,000 miles. When you replace the timing belt sometimes there are other parts that should be replaced at the same time so for most of these car their are timing belt kits available and buying as a kit saves money.
