An important element of your vehicle's engine is the timing belt. Like may car and truck owners, you may have some familiarity with the term "timing belt," but not really understand its functionality.

The timing belt in your engine is responsible for controlling the engine's crankshaft and camshaft. The crankshaft coordinates the engine’s pistons. The camshaft operates to open and close the engine’s valves. These functions must occur with precision. The typical vehicle owner's manual recommends replacing the timing belt somewhere between 60,000 and 100,000 miles, depending on the automobile or truck in question. Lack of timely replacement can result in a timing belt breaking or snapping, resulting in serious engine damage.
