Just like a conductor tells each musical instrument when to play during an orchestra, the timing belt tells all of the moving engine parts where to be and when. The Engine Timing Belt is responsible for the synchronization of the engine and all of its vital moving parts. Without proper synchronization, the engine wouldn’t even be able to start. The Engine Timing Belt takes power generated at the crankshaft and turns the camshaft in the perfect sequence. The camshaft then controls the valves’ opening and closing by regulating RPMs demanded by the crankshaft. In short, the timing belt regulates the vital moving parts of the internal combustion engine in perfect synchronization for the smoothest ride and maximum fuel efficiency. At Rolling Hills Honda, we encourage everyone to monitor their Engine Timing Belt for any symptoms of a problem, giving you the opportunity to correct any minor problems before the issue gets out of hand.
