It is recommended to replace the timing belt after every 100,000 miles covered or if you notice any unusual noises from the engine.
Benefits of Timing Belt Replacement
Increased horsepower and acceleration
A newly replaced timing belt improves the coordination between the crankshaft and camshaft. This improved coordination enhances the rotatory motion of the wheels and provides increased acceleration and horsepower.
Driving a car with worn-out timing belt causes further damage to crankshaft, camshaft, and sometimes pistons in the engine. Replacing the timing belt eliminates the additional expenses on repairing these components.
Improved fuel mileage
A new cambelt puts lesser stress on the engine; hence, leads to lower fuel consumption. As a result, the overall fuel economy of the vehicle gets increased.
What if I omit the replacement of timing belt?
Driving a vehicle with a worn-out timing belt can cause severe engine failures. Moreover, the damage can also spread to other components of the engine’s bay.
