What are Timing Belts?

The timing belt holds the camshaft and crankshaft together, which is what makes your engine work properly. The timing belt helps rotate the engine's camshaft and crankshaft in sync. You find the timing belt located under the timing cover in the front of the engine. If you hear a whining or chattering from the front of your engine, it is likely a timing belt issue.

Most timing belts today are made from high-grade rubber with nylon-reinforced cords, so you do not have to replace as often as before. Most newer cars will not have to check their timing belts until 100,000 miles. However, older vehicles may need to check their timing belts at 60,000 miles.

If you think that there is an issue with your timing belt, you can listen to your engine or check your vehicle manual to be sure what the issue is. However, the best thing to do is to visit our service center here at Auto Park Ford of Bremen, which can help with your timing belt issues. This dealership is conveniently located in Bremen.
