Warning Signs That Your Timing Belt is Failing

At Garcia Honda Albuquerque, our service mechanics are always ready to provide you with assistance. Keeping your vehicle maintained is one of the best ways to extend the life of your vehicle's engine. A timing belt serves an important purpose because it helps certain components in your engine function properly.

A timing belt keeps the camshaft and crankshaft in sync to help the cylinders fire at the proper time. It also controls the valves and pistons inside the engine so that they open at the right time.

A timing belt is typically covered to protect it from oil and dirt, so it can be hard to inspect on your own, but there are warning signs that can let you know it has worn out. If you hear a clicking sound coming from the engine, it could be a worn timing belt. Another warning sign to look out for is when the engine misfires. Be sure to have your timing belt inspected at the first signs of wear to avoid damage to the engine.
