Vehicles are amazing machines. Dozens of complex systems come together to create a powerful technology that moves people anywhere they want to go. Toy Doctor in Littleton, Colorado appreciates the design and manufacturing of Asian imports. As experts in their repairs and services, we fully understand the systems that get them moving and power them for thousands of miles. Without the engine, your car wouldn’t budge. And one of the most important components to this powerhouse component is the timing belt. This part has an enormous role in controlling engine components and performance. Without it, the engine would fail from interference, a dangerous collision of pistons and valves. All vehicles will need timing belt replacement at some point, but to better understand why and when you’ll need this essential service, you need to know more about its role in the engine.
The timing belt works like a bike chain to keep parts moving in synchronization. Coordinating the movement of the camshaft and crankshaft, the belt prevents the collision of pistons and valves. While belt failure is uncommon, problems with the tensioner and other components could result in catastrophic engine failure. If the movement of parts isn’t coordinated in perfect time, interference will prevent your vehicle from moving an inch!
Timing belts are well-made to prevent unexpected failure. If you visit Toy Doctor regularly for maintenance service, our ASE Certified technicians will keep an eye on its condition to ensure it isn’t frayed or damaged. If we notice signs of wear, we’ll notify you and perform repairs promptly. It’s important to replace the timing belt before the manufacturer’s recommendations.
