It May Be Time To Check Your Timing Belt

There’s a lot of moving parts under the hood of your car, and they all need to be checked out occasionally. Like in other situations, prevention is always the best policy. This is especially true when it comes to timing belts.

The timing belt helps the camshaft and crankshaft turn at a synchronized rate. Without it working correctly, your engine can suddenly stop functioning and things could go downhill quickly. Your intake valves could get bent and your pistons could break. Neither of these situations would be fun to repair, both in terms of cost and time.

It’s recommended that you change out your belt every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. You should probably get it looked at if you hear high-pitched noises coming from your engine. You can call West Side Acura in Edmonton to schedule a service appointment.
