- 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.
