Have you had your timing belt inspected or replaced? This rubber belt plays a crucial role in keeping your engine running. If it breaks, your engine will stop running and can sustain expensive damage. Knowing the signs of a worn timing belt can keep your engine running smoothly.

The timing belt connects the crankshaft and camshaft, moving them in sync. Over time, your timing belt becomes worn, eventually needing replacement. You may hear a high-pitched noise coming from your engine or notice visible wear on the belt. Vehicle manufacturers provide a recommended replacement schedule, usually between 60,000 and 100,000 miles.

If you haven’t had your timing belt looked at in a while, or you think it might be time for a replacement, our service team at Route 23 Honda in Pompton Plains, NJ can help. Schedule an appointment today and let our qualified staff make sure your timing belt is in good shape.
