Why Timing Belts Are Important

If you want your car to run well, it's essential that all of the moving parts in the engine work properly. One of the most critical components is the timing belt. It ensures that the camshaft and crankshaft are turning in sync with each other, and as a result, valves and pistons can move at just the right time.

When a timing belt begins to show signs of weakness, you'll likely hear a high-pitched noise coming from under your hood. This can resemble shrieking or whining. This noise calls for a service appointment as soon as possible. When a belt breaks, internal components can also break, and this often requires an expensive and extensive repair.

Experts recommend that you get your belt replaced every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Call us at First Choice Honda to set up a service appointment.
