You have probably heard of a timing belt, but do you know what it does? At San Leandro Honda, we like to keep our consumers informed about the components of their vehicles. A timing belt is a vital part of your engine. If it is worn or snaps, it should be replaced immediately to keep the engine from becoming damaged.

A timing belt keeps the camshaft and crankshaft rotating in sync to ensure the cylinder fires at the right time. It also controls the valves and pistons in the engine so that they will open at the correct time.

Although timing belts are durable, they undergo a lot of strain to keep everything moving in sync, so it is important to have it replaced at the first signs of wear. If you notice a clicking sound coming from the engine, it could be a worn timing belt. Another sign that your timing belt is bad is when the engine misfires.
