What is a Timing Belt, and Why Replacing a Timing Belt is Important
Your timing belt is crucial to your engine by helping to open and close your engine’s valves.
A broken or worn-out belt can render your vehicle inoperable. Replacing belts at the first sign of wear helps avoid unexpected breakdowns, so both you and your car can stay on the go.
When to Replace a Timing Belt or a Belt Tensioner
Because belts are a critical part of your engine, they generally need to be replaced every 30,000 - 60,000 miles (50,000 km - 100,000 km).
