Timing Belts and Why You Need to be on Top of Maintenance

The timing belt is placed inside engines to keep the pistons and valves moving as they should. This is possible because the crankshaft and camshaft are linked by the belt. Caspian Auto Motors knows automakers take their time creating such beautiful engines. Like any other belt, this one can break or crack after some time of service.

You do not want it to break because it'll cause your car to stop without warning. This could put your passengers or other drivers in danger. There could also be some damage that could cost hundreds or thousands of dollars to repair.

All the tools you need to prevent this from happening are tucked away in your manual. A trusted service department can help with maintenance as well. You will likely need a new belt as soon as you hit 60,000 to 100,000 miles.
