• The timing belt connects the upper and lower part of the engine and keeps them synchronized.
  • Over time, just like any other belt, the rubber dries out and the belt starts to crack.
  • Vehicle manufacturers recommend replacement of this belt at intervals between 60,000 and 105,000 miles.
  • On many vehicles, there are other pulleys and components that should be replaced at the same time.
  • Most vehicles have an interference type engine, meaning if the belt were to break, internal engine components could be damaged.
  • By replacing this belt before it breaks, you avoid costly engine repair.
