Do you worry about your car breaking down on the highway? Knowing the warning signs to keep your timing belt lasting as long as possible will help you keep from having a snapped timing belt in a hazardous situation. A snapped timing belt is a common reason cars break down. At City Garage our DFW ASE Certified Technicians recommend getting a new timing belt every 90,000 miles.

Your timing belt plays a crucial role in synchronizing movements of your engine crankshaft, camshaft, pistons and valves. A timing belt assures all of these components work together to provide the best performance for your engine.

Without your timing belt your crankshaft would fail to operate. Your engine crankshaft relies on the timing belt to keep the crankshaft in motion. If the crankshaft is not moving, the pistons are not working properly.

In addition, your engine camshaft is responsible for opening and closing each engine valve. These valves open and close in regards to your pistons’ position inside of your engine cylinder. The timing belt assures regulation and synchronization in the piston and valve movement.
