The results of a failed timing belt can be catastrophic and expensive. While it may not be your highest priority in vehicle maintenance, it is imperative that it is changed when recommended by the manufacturer as a failed timing belt can result in complete engine breakdown.

In an internal combustion engine, the timing belt synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft with the camshafts. In an interference engine, it is critical in preventing a collision between the valves and the piston. Constructed of rubber and residing in an extremely harsh environment, timing belts usually fail because of stripped teeth or de-lamination and unraveling of its fiber core.
