Don't Get Stuck, Have Your Timing Belt Checked

The timing belt is an essential component of your car. Without it, the engine does not run. Many times, a bad timing belt will give you warning, but this is not always the case.

The timing belt keeps your camshaft and crankshaft running in perfect harmony. When the belt becomes badly damaged, or the tensioners and pulleys are not working properly, it can cause the belt to squeal. It does not always do this, and sometimes the belt just snaps suddenly, leaving you stranded. The best way to prevent this is to have your timing belt inspected regularly as a part of routine car maintenance. A little bit of prevention is less expensive than the damage caused by a broken timing belt.

Don’t get stuck on the side of the road. Bring your car in to Sill-TerHar Mazda today for a timing belt inspection.
