TIMING BELT HELPS OPEN AND CLOSE VALVES
The timing belt is an important part of most internal combustion engines and runs between the crankshaft and the camshaft. The timing belt tells the valves inside of a piston when to open and close, and it critical to the proper running of your vehicle. Failure to replace a broken or damaged timing belt can result in significant engine damage, if you suspect your belt needs replaced, bring it into Land Rover Frisco today.
Timing belts are generally constructed of extremely hard rubber, with teeth running on the inside of the belt. These teeth engage a series of gears that tell the valves when to open or close. Over time the teeth, as well as the belt itself, will become worn and stretched. This can lead to a poorly running engine or even damage to the pistons themselves.
Consult your owner’s manual for suggested timing belt replacement times, and bring your car in to our automotive service team at Land Rover Frisco today.
