Timing Belt Replacement
Replacment of timing belts is sometimes overlooked by people as just another expense. But not having your timing belt changed at the correct intervals can cause major damage to the engine resulting in a much more costly repair.
A lot of the modern engines are known as interference engines where if the timing belt was to break the pistons could hit the valves causing inlet valves and exhaust valves to bend and possible damage to pistons.
The timing belt or cambelt as they are sometimes known drives the crankshaft and camshaft together at just the right time so that air/exhaust enters and leaves the cylinders at the correct time.
Other vital parts of the engine run off of the cambelt as well such as the water pump and fuel pump.
