Automotive Tips from LaSalle Auto Centre: Timing Belt Overview

Wednesday 11 November 2015

In your engine, valves over each combustion chamber open to allow fresh air in, close during the combustion event, and then other valves open to let out the exhaust. All of this happens over and over thousands of times a minute when you are driving around Sarnia . The timing belt’s important job is to make sure that all of this happens as it should – at precisely the right time. If the timing is off, your engine won’t run efficiently or maybe not at all – so a good timing belt is important. If it should break, you could end up at LaSalle Auto Centre with expensive engine damage.

Ask your friendly and professional LaSalle Auto Centre service advisor when your timing belt is scheduled for replacement.
