Timing Belt Function
A timing belt is an important component in a car’s engine that synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft. The crankshaft is responsible for converting the reciprocating motion of the pistons into rotational motion, while the camshaft controls the opening and closing of the engine’s valves.
The timing belt is responsible for ensuring that the crankshaft and camshaft rotate at the correct time and in the correct sequence. This is achieved by controlling the timing of the engine’s valve opening and closing, which regulates the flow of air and fuel into the combustion chamber and the expulsion of exhaust gases.
Camshaft and Crankshaft
To synchronize the camshaft and crankshaft rotation a timing belt is used. It is also responsible for intake and exhaust strokes of the valves (as it drives the cam). It is most important maintenance item (car timing belts and timing chain) in your car but it is neglected in many vehicles. It’s neglected on cars with reversed meters for easy selling or when odometers are replaced altogether when they stop functioning. Please note that interference engine designs will have the full head damaged if the timing belt snaps. Examples are Honda Civics 1997-2000
Honda Civics 2000-2007 D15 D16 Engines
Also, newer engines both by Honda and Toyota are coming with timing chains that hardly snap but do require some adjustments or replacements at 200,000KM+ due to fatigued joints causing minor power loss.
