What is a Timing Belt?

The timing belt is contained in its own housing, but it works through the engine’s power to connect to and operate the crankshaft and camshaft. The timing belt is critical to the rest of the engine’s parts working properly. Regular maintenance is highly recommended to keep it in top-running order.

As stated, the timing belt connects to the crankshaft, and the crankshaft is the part that supplies power to other parts. The clutch is one that depends on the crankshaft. The camshaft, on the other hand, uses the energy it receives from the timing belt to control the valves of the engine.

The timing belt should be changed at regular intervals as indicated by your vehicle’s manufacturer. It is crucial to the overall operation of the engine’s components. If you hear popping when you drive, it could indicate that the cam and crankshafts aren’t working properly, and may need service. Stop in to our service center at Erwin Chrysler Dodge Jeep.
