What Happens When The Timing Belt Of Your Car Breaks?

 

One of the most important components in a car engine is the timing belt. It’s responsible for ensuring that the camshaft and crankshaft are properly synchronized. When it breaks, however, this delicate balance is disrupted, causing major problems inside and outside your engine. In other words - when your timing belt goes wrong, you won't go anywhere soon! 

In today's post, we'll explore some common symptoms of a broken timing belt and what can be done to prevent it from breaking further down the line. Read on to learn more about maintaining and understanding your car’s vital timing belts!


Broken Timing Belts: A Silent Car Killer

When a car’s timing belt breaks, it can be an expensive setback. When the timing belt breaks, it can lead to severe damage to parts of the engine that are very costly and time-consuming to repair. If left undetected or unrepaired, the consequences of a broken timing belt affecting other parts in the vehicle can cause long-term damage that could lead to complete engine failure. 

Thankfully, most cars have a warning signal or chirp that lets you know when maintenance is needed, and that attention should be paid to the condition of your car's timing belt. Regular maintenance will help prevent more extensive and costlier repairs from occurring down the road.


Timing Belts Are Important 

Timing belts are one of the most critical components in a vehicle's engine, but many drivers only realize how essential it is once there is a problem. It is a rubber belt that connects the crankshaft to the camshaft, allowing those two vital parts to stay in sync. 

Because timing belts will eventually degrade over time and with regular use, they must be replaced every seven years to keep the engine running properly. Unfortunately, when a timing belt breaks and fails, drivers may not even notice because there isn't an immediate effect on the car's performance. 

However, continued use without fixing this important component can seriously damage your engine and cause important repair bills down the line if not checked regularly by a trusted mechanic. Proper oil service can have a dramatic effect on the lifespan of your vehicle. Timing belts, particularly, will last much longer if flushed and refilled regularly. 

Maintain Your Car’s Timing Belt 

At Weber Automotive, you don't need to be worried about your timing belt: When you get a Castrol oil change at Weber Automotive, it comes with a 500,000-mile guarantee. This means that regular oil maintenance at Weber Automotive is the best way to ensure that your car's components stay in top shape for years and years.
