If you're like most people, you've heard of a timing belt but may not specifically understand what role it plays in the operation of your vehicle. A timing belt is designed to control the operation of the camshaft and crankshaft in an engine. The crankshaft works to manage the workings of an engine's pistons. Meanwhile, the camshaft opens and closes an engine's valves.

Your vehicle owner's manual will set forth information about when the timing belt needs to be replaced. The failure to replace the timing belt in a timely manner can result in it breaking. If it snaps, serious damage can be sustained to an engine.

If your vehicle is in need of service, including replacing the timing belt in the engine, the team at Stokes Honda North stands ready to assist. We will schedule a service or maintenance appointment any time convenient for you.
