Timing Belt: Why Does it Matter?

There are so many parts of a vehicle that it is easy to get lost in the jumble of names for things. You can't be blamed if this has happened to you at some point. However, there are certain elements such as the timing belt that you should really try to get to know better.

The timing belt is a piece of your vehicle that controls how much air and gasoline get into the engine area. That matters because the engine can only properly run when it has just the right combination of both air and gas. Get that combination off even just a little bit and you could have a big issue on your hands.

You should be maintaining the whole vehicle at all times, but you should definitely focus in on the timing belt if it starts to cause you problems. That is one element that is difficult to recover from if it starts to have issues.
