Your timing belt is driven by the crankshaft and helps keep your engine's components in sync by causing valves to open and close at the correct time.
As they are made from rubber, timing belts naturally wear out over time. While they should be replaced every 60,000 to 90,000 miles, sometimes they get broken. In this situation, repairs will be determined by the type of engine that you have:
- Non-interference engine - If the timing belt breaks, the valves and pistons don't come into contact with one another. The belt can be replaced
- Interference engine - If the timing belt breaks, the pistons will hit the valves, causing major engine damage. This means that your cylinder head will need to be removed and the valves replaced. In some cases, the piston may be damaged and your engine may need replacing
Putting off changing your timing belt could result in damage to your engine and significant expense. So, it's vital you ensure it is replaced on a regular basis.
