Here in this blog, we concentrate on the timing belt of your vehicle and the signs to follow for replacement.
A timing belt is a rubber-like figure, which links the camshaft and crankshaft of your engine. It manages the pistons of the engine and handles the opening and closing of the camshaft and crankshafts. It undergoes a substantial amount of pressure, and tends to wear off quickly. However, this results in engine problems.
- Your engine is likely to misfire due to overheat
- You can sense a tickling noise, due to the teeth on the timing belt
- Your engine fails to start
- Unusual smoke arise from the engine

- Pistons and Valves get damaged
A timing belt has to be maintained in a certain pressure, that helps prolong its durability. In recent years, most vehicles come with timing chains and it hardly gets replacement, unless there is a problem in the engine. However, a timing belt tends to wear out. Once you hear the rough idling on the surface, you can assume that your timing belt has to be replaced. An experienced car repair workshops can help with timing belt replacement adhering to the manufacturer’s timeline. A mechanic has to dismantle the belt and uncover the problems that lie beneath.
