Whats a Timing Belt do? – Car Business on the Job
Hi, Bob Aldons from Car Business on the Job for you. Car Business is a full-service new car broker, quality used car retailer, provider of finance and insurance for new and used cars, as well as a facilitator for new and used car service. Today, I’m talking about how a car timing belt work. This information is relevant to all timing belt driven engines. A car’s timing belt is a rubber toothed belt which is designed to drive the camshaft, balance shaft, water and oil pumps depending on manufacturer’s engine design, via the engine crankshaft. Here’s some information from 2carpros which provides an easily understood, simple English explanation.
And here’s the bottom line. If your car has a timing belt, it needs to be changed according to manufacturer specifications. The consequences of not doing it on time is that the timing belt may break which will cause untold damage to the car’s engine. The average cost of a timing belt is around $700, whilst the cost of fixing the result of a broken timing belt will run into thousands of dollars, up to tens of thousands of dollars vehicle dependent.
Timing belts are more common in overhead cam engines and are more easily serviced than a timing chain. A timing belt is constructed of a fiber reinforced rubber with vertical ribs vulcanized to the inside of the belt. When a timing belt fails it will allow the ribs to shred stopping the driving motion. To check the condition of the timing belt (engine off) remove the timing belt cover (upper), using a flash light inspect the condition of the belt, check for cracks especially at the base of drive teeth. An engine has a unique set of crankshaft, camshaft and accessory timing marks.
The timing belt or chain needs to be replaced per manufacturer’s specification and can fail without warning which stalls the engine. Because a timing chain configuration is more durable, a timing belt will need to be replaced more often, comparatively.
