Importance of The Timing Belt

Being a vehicle owner comes with the responsibility of making sure routine maintenance is being performed on your car’s engine ensuring that it is safe to drive. One part that is often overlooked is the timing belt, below are two signs that the timing belt may be going bad and needs to be replaced:

  • Engine Misfire- One indicator that the timing belt may be going bad is the engine will misfire. Since the timing belt is attached to the crank and camshaft if it is going bad it may slip causing the cylinders to open and close out of sync leading to a misfire. This needs to be addressed immediately as it can lead to costly engine repairs.
  • Oil Leak- One indicator that the timing belt is going bad is there will be oil leaking from the timing belt cover. Another symptom is oil leaking from the gasket which may cause the engine to run too hot and will wear out the timing belt quicker.
