How Do Timing Belts Work?

The timing belt is located in the car engine. You can find it by looking under the timing cover at the front of the engine in most vehicles. However, some vehicles are designed with a different placement. The timing belt holds the camshaft and crankshaft together so that the two rotate at the same time at the correct rate. Otherwise, your car engine will not run properly.

Most cars will need the timing belt replaced once in their lifetime. For newer cars, this is probably at 100,000 miles, but older cars may need to have the timing belt replaced at 60,000 miles. You can tell when a timing belt has gone bad because it chatters and whines underneath the timing cover.

In addition, your car engine may not turn over if the timing belt has broken or become too loose. You can get your timing belt checked at Napleton Lincoln in Glenview located in Glenview, IL.
