Engine Rubber Timing Belt replacement is the modern car maintenance and maintenance of the most common, the most critical, high technological requirements of a special work. A rubber timing belt around the two institutions, the five systems in the order of operation, accurately restricting the intake, compression, operation, exhaust and other work. If the replacement process is not up to standard, the technology is not mature, the method is not correct, the process will not directly affect the normal rigor of the normal work of the engine.

Many overhead camshaft engines use rubber timing belt or formal chain to transmit power, and to ensure that the crankshaft, camshaft quality inspection position is the engine's intake and exhaust valve in the appropriate time to open or close, to ensure that the engine The cylinder can be normal suction and exhaust. The timing belt is made of rubber and fibrous material and is reinforced with glass fiber and other materials that are stretched and worn during use. For most engines with timing belts, if the rubber timing belt breaks, will damage the engine, so most of the car manufacturers require a certain period of time must be replaced with timing belt.

Unfortunately, the visual inspection itself is not a definite way to determine the true condition of the belt, because you can not see the internal wear as important as the external wear, you can see. All the belts are reinforced with wires. The rope is brought to its strength and keeps it not stretched or broken. But with the aging of the belt, constant bending, heat and strain will weaken the wires. Eventually, the wires reached the point where they suddenly and accidentally failed. The belt still looks like the new one on the outside, but because the wires have lost power, so the edge of the internal buckle.

Therefore, other factors that need to be taken into account in determining the timing zone include the mileage and age of the band. More than 3 or 4 years of belt, with more than 40,000 or 50,000 miles of the belt may be close to the end of the life of the belt. So, even if it looks pretty good, it is recommended that you replace the high mileage belt.
