Timing Belt

The Importance of Replacing Your Timing Belt

The timing belt is one of the most critical parts of your vehicle. What many people don't know is that worn or broken timing belts can lead to catastrophic engine damage. That's why it is crucial to have your timing belt periodically inspected and replaced, if necessary, before it breaks. Trophy Nissan presents this inside look at the importance of timing belt operation and maintenance.

When Should I Replace My Timing Belt?

Your timing belt is responsible for the proper operation of your engine's valves and pistons. In simple terms, the belt orchestrates a perfectly timed sequence of these moving engine parts to ensure they're synchronized to function in harmony. However, the belt is subject to wear and tear over time and will eventually need to be replaced. Early warning signs of a worn timing belt may include sluggish engine performance or misfires. Unfortunately, a timing belt can fail suddenly with no warning at all. Typically, a timing belt could last anywhere from 60,000 to 100,000 miles, or four to six years. However, you should refer to your owner's manual for the projected lifespan of the timing belt in your vehicle. If it approaches or has exceeded that figure, you should have the belt inspected as soon as possible.
