Failure to replace timing belts may result in total engine failure, bent and or broken valves, camshaft damage, cylinder head damage, and piston or cylinder damage. Your vehicle’s timing belt is an important factor in your car operation. Did you know, the timing belt’s purpose is to harmonize crankshaft and camshaft rotation.
