What is a timing belt?

Nearly all of today's vehicles utilize a timing belt. The main purpose of the timing belt is to ensure that the vehicle's crankshaft and camshaft are operating in a synchronized fashion. Without proper timing, these parts can generate enough vibration to seriously damage the motor, or, in some cases, a stretched timing belt can keep the vehicle from operating at all.

?If the timing belt happens to break while the vehicle is in motion, it will likely cause thousands in additional damage to the motor. Given that this component is so critical to the proper function and longevity of any vehicle, it is of utmost importance to have the timing belt regularly inspected and changed when needed before a break occurs. This is a service which can be done at Frontier Honda, and once you have your timing belt serviced, you can drive in confidence knowing your engine and its components are all working properly.
