Timing Belt Replacement in Springfield, MO
Your vehicle’s timing belt is crucial to the engine’s operation and performance. The job of the timing belt is to make sure that the movement of the camshaft is synchronized with the movement of the crankshaft, which is important when it comes to the timing of the engine’s 4 main phases: the intake phase, compression phase, combustion phase, and exhaust phase. A broken timing belt can prevent proper engine performance, damage surrounding parts, and stop your engine from working altogether.

How Often to Replace Timing Belt
Since timing belts are always in use while your vehicle is running, they can wear down and begin to tear after a certain period of time. If you’re wondering when to replace the timing belt, it typically is around every 60,000 miles or so. A good rule of thumb is to check your owner’s manual for the proper replacement interval or have it replaced as soon as signs of wear and tear are obvious.
