Although a timing belt is often overlooked, it is an integral component of your engine that plays a significant role. It keeps the crankshaft in accord with the camshaft, making sure that your engine valves operate efficiently, and therein, the whole engine. If your timing belt fails, so will your engine and this will cause your vehicle to shut down. Thus, proper routine maintenance is essential to avoid costly repair bills, and have your car running reliably for years to come.
