Timing Belt A timing belt is a type of power transmission belt used in internal combustion engines and other mechanical systems to synchronise the rotation of the engine’s camshaft and crankshaft. It is designed with teeth on the inner surface that mesh with corresponding teeth on the gears or pulleys it drives, providing precise and synchronous power transmission.

Q: What are the signs of a failing timing belt?
Signs of a failing timing belt may include engine misfires, rough idling, difficulty starting the engine, excessive noise from the engine, or illuminated warning lights on the dashboard.
Q: What happens if the timing belt breaks or fails?
If the timing belt breaks or fails, the engine's camshaft and crankshaft will lose synchronization. This can lead to significant engine damage, such as bent valves, damaged pistons, or even a complete engine failure.
