Replace Your Timing Belt to Keep You On Time

Most cars today come with a timing belt, which is a very important component of the engine. The timing belt is a thick rubber belt that help the camshaft and the crankshaft turn in synchronicity. When these two parts work together, the engine can run without causing damage.

When a timing belt breaks, it can be bad news for your car. At best the car will stop running, and at worst it can cause damage to your engine. This is why it is very important to replace your timing belt before it breaks. Be sure to check your owner's manual for when to change your belt. Most cars need it replaced between 60,000 and 100,000 miles.

To keep your car from stopping on the highway on your way to work, change your timing belt regularly. When the time comes, be sure to call Lithia Toyota of Missoula to replace your belt.
