Do you worry about your car breaking down on the highway? Well knowing the warning signs to keep your timing belt lasting as long as possible will help you from having a snapped time belt on the interstate. A snapped timing belt is a common reason cars break down. At Arlington City Garage our Arlington ASE Certified Technicians recommend getting a new timing belt every 90,000 miles.

Your timing belt plays a crucial role in synchronizing the movements of your engine crankshaft, camshaft, pistons and valves. A timing belt assures all of these to work together to provide the best performance for your engine.

Without your timing belt your crankshaft would fail to operate. Your engine crankshaft relies on the timing belt to allow the crankshaft to remain in motion. If the crankshaft is not moving, the pistons are not working properly.

In addition, your engine camshaft is in charge of opening and closing each engine valve. The valves open and close in rhythm to your pistons’ position inside of your engine cylinder. The timing belt assures synchronization in the piston and valve movement.
