Everyone knows the old saying "out of sight, out of mind", but when it comes to your vehicles timing belt this is one thing that is out of sight but certainly should not be out of mind. Hidden deep behind dust covers and other engine components it can be hard to keep up with the condition of your vehicles timing belt, but it is definitely not something that should be thrown to the wayside. This is one of the many reasons why you may see so many vehicles pulled over to the side of the road, particularly when inclimate weather hits and wear/tear is especially prevelent.
Timing belts should be changed every 60,000 miles or as often as needed, benefits of this being some of the following:
Increase In Horse Power
Better Fuel Economy
Lower Auto Repair Costs
Other than these reasons, if a timing belt is in good condition and maintained properly, it can provide minimal vibration, chordal effect and high mechanical efficiency. Plus, a timing belt can improve the power transmission efficiency, reduce noise, resist contaminants/chemicals, and keep your vehicle in clean operation.
