Some Facts About Timing Belts

Your car most likely has a timing belt. Without it, your vehicle will not run. The timing belt keeps your car's camshaft and crankshaft running in sync. If your timing belt were to suddenly fail, your car will stop running. Here are some more facts about timing belts.

Your car's camshaft controls the engine valves while the crankshaft controls the pistons. When they do not work in sync, your engine will not fire properly. The timing belt is what keeps the shafts running together. Some cars use chains as their timing belt while most of today's modern vehicles use rubber belts. If your timing belt is out of time or it fails, it can cause extensive damage to the engine.

If your car does not seem like it is running properly, it could be your timing belt starting to fail. Let one of our automotive technicians at DCH Subaru of Riverside check your car's belt and timing.
