The timing belt is a component of your vehicle's engine that has an important job when it comes to the overall operation of your vehicle. The timing belt controls the camshaft, which opens and closes the engine valves at the right time in order to keep your vehicle’s engine running smoothly. A tearing or worn out timing belt can cause engine problems and should be replaced at the first sign of damage.
