The car engine has a lot of belts, one of the most important belts is the synchronous belt. No such belt is working properly and may affect the entire operation of the engine. It's purpose is to turn the camshafts exactly half as fast as the crankshaft. Some manufacturers have made chains, not a belt. This chain is loved by many owners because it does not need to be replaced. The only problem in the chain is the noise it produces. Therefore, there are still many owners choose timing belt.
Timing belt needs to be replaced depending on the type of engine. Some belts can only rotate one camshaft, while others may rotate up to four. The more the camshaft that the belt must move, the faster the wear. The standard idea is to replace the belt with a distance of sixty thousand miles to one hundred and fifty thousand miles. Many people like to put this out of this time period because of the cost involved. This is a mistake because there is no replacement for the belt that could lead to several other mechanical nightmares that will cost more repair costs.
The correct belt replacement, though not very easy to perform, can be done in your garage or lane. Replacing a timing belt is more difficult than replacing a fan belt and integrating more work. When replacing the timing belt, it is best to replace the pump because it must be removed during this process. Through the steps, you can learn how to change the timing of the car.
First remove the car battery and remove the dispenser cover. If your vehicle does not have a distributor, make sure the cam position sensor is TDC or the top dead center. Turn the engine to ensure that the timing mark on the crankshaft pulley is at the "O" mark on the Rubber Timing Belt scale. Take out screws, bolts, other parts and belts that prevent belt replacement. Remember that each belt is different and has a different part. Then release the belt tensioner and install the bolts, but do not remove them. Keep the tensioner away from the belt, then reinforce and tighten the mounting bolts and place the tensioner in the correct position. Slide out of the timing belt and remove it from the engine. Finally, replace it with brand new.
