Timing belts play a vitally important role in the way your car functions by controlling the timing of its internal combustion engine. While the belt itself is quite simple in design (it’s a simple rubber belt with teeth), it performs the crucially important function of ensuring the crankshaft and the camshaft are rotating in sync. Without synchronicity between the crankshaft and the camshaft, the pistons and the valves would fall out of sync and collide, resulting in the need for costly automotive repairs.
Unlike other mechanical issues, you won’t notice any warning signs that your timing belt is becoming worn down, which is why regular servicing is important as the belt can be inspected and replaced if needed. However, if your timing belt breaks and needs replacing, bring your car to Croft Auto’s modern workshop in North Cairns and we’ll replace it quickly and professionally for you.
