Highly Efficient Automotive Timing Belts

Automotive timing belts are crucial for any vehicle and are usually hidden away behind dust covers. Being out of sight makes it hard to access their condition and also makes some people think that if it can’t be seen it must not be important enough to bother with. Many people even think in the clichéd way that “theirs is no need to fix what’s not broken”. This is one of the many reason you might see cars breaking down and being pulled over on the roadsides so often. According to many car manufacturers and mechanics these cogged belts should be replaced and maintained regularly, preferably after every 10,000 kilometers.

Timing belts are used to synchronize the engine’s camshaft and crank shafts so that they turn at the same rotational frequency, which ensures that the intake and exhaust valves open and close at the correct time which results in smooth and proper operation of the internal combustion engine.

Proper maintenance of timing belts also has many benefits such as,

More Horsepower- Regular belt changes and proper maintenance is said to increase acceleration rate and total horsepower of your car as there is a noticeable change in these two criteria when you hit the gas, right after a belt replacement.

Increased fuel efficiency- Regular and scheduled belt replacements will radically improve your gas mileage. A timing belt in good condition, fitted properly, will ensure the camshaft and crankshaft to operate smoothly and efficiently, providing better mileage and fuel efficiency.

Lower Repair costs- Another simple reason to change your car’s timing belts regularly at scheduled intervals is to incur lower auto repair costs as a bet change will cost you far less than repairing the damages caused by a snapped and damaged belt. Thus it is always recommended to check and maintain the condition of the timing belts to avoid unnecessary repairs.

Timing belts are used to synchronize the movements of the crankshaft and camshaft, thus ensuring the engine valves to open and close appropriately during each cylinder stroke. It is a vital part of any automobile and is critical to avoid the engine pistons from colliding with the valves and the subsequent damages. A timing belt is usually made up of synthesized rubber mixed with glass fibers and generally have teeth on the inside surface that allows it to grab and rotate the appropriate gear mechanisms. They’re lighter and operate silently and also have a low production cost.
