Timing belt replacement

A timing belt is an integral part of your car. Your vehicle needs a timing belt to stay in sync. Its primary function is to connect the crankshaft to the camshaft, thus controlling the piston and valve. And if you understand anything about an automotive engine, you'd realize that these parts of your car need to be in sync to ensure maximum efficiency.

But like most automobile parts, you should regularly inspect the timing belt as it can cut or weaken with time. In such cases, you may start having issues with keeping your vehicle on or experiencing a high fuel consumption rate from the car.

How often should I check my timing belt (cambelt)?

It is crucial and essential for a frequent or daily evaluation or review of a timing belt. And sometimes, it depends on how often you use your vehicle. Ask yourself questions like how many miles or meters you cover per journey. You will mitigate the risk of engine failure and car breakdown when you check your timing belt frequently.

Thus, you can reduce the cost of towing your vehicle to a nearby auto shop in the UAE if the timing belt cuts or snaps. Also, you should get a timing belt replace when it is weak or within the recommended period by the manufacturer. Note that most information on replacement is written in the car manual.
