What is a Timing Belt?

November 30th, 2018 by

Like so many other under-the-hood parts, the timing belt is a small part of what makes your vehicle run but a very important part. It’s so important, in fact, that without a functioning timing belt, your car would quit running. Come to Straub Honda if you have any questions or concerns about your vehicle’s timing belt.

The timing belt is the small but important component that keeps the crankshaft and camshaft turning in sync with each other, which keeps the engine running. If the timing belt breaks, the car can break down and possibly even cause serious engine damage. Timing belts should be inspected every 60,000 to 100,000 miles.

Even if your vehicle is running great, you may want to consider having it serviced to ensure it continues running smoothly. Call or stop at our Honda dealership and let us inspect the timing belt or give it a full inspection.
