Your Vehicle’s Timing Belt Helps Your Car’s Engine Run Correctly

January 31st, 2018 by

None of us like to take our vehicle to the shop. We especially don’t like to do it when something unfamiliar happens to our vehicle such as a faulty timing belt. That is why we here at McKay’s Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT in Waite Park want to give you the basics on timing belts.

The timing belt in your vehicle is designed to work with the camshaft to properly open and close the many valves in your engine at precisely the right time. If it becomes worn or damaged your vehicle may have a tough time idling.

Many experts suggest that a timing belt can last anywhere between 60,000 and 100,000 miles. This number could of course go up or down depending on how well you care for your car and how frequently you have your car serviced with an experienced automobile professional.

If you are looking for a quality service team to perform service on your vehicle be sure to give us a call or stop on by McKay’s Dodge Chrysler Jeep Ram FIAT in Waite Park at your earliest convenience.
