The timing belt in your vehicle has an important job. It makes sure that the camshaft and crankshaft are turning at the right rate, and this leads to the valves opening and closing properly. All of these movements are vital to keeping an engine working efficiently.

When your timing belt breaks, so can other parts of your engine, like your intake valve and your pistons. These can be quite expensive to fix, so this situation is definitely one that you want to avoid. To protect yourself and your vehicle, it's recommended that you change out your timing belt every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. If you haven't driven your car that far but hear a high-pitched sound coming from the engine, it's probably wise to have things checked out.
