You've probably heard of a timing belt, but do you actually know how important it is? The answer is that it's very important. Your timing belt is necessary for the vehicle to operate, and if it breaks when your engine is running, you could be looking at several thousand dollars' worth of repair or replacement bills on your engine. At Burdick Volkswagen, we want you to have a general idea about the function and importance of your timing belt so that you come in and replace it before you have problems.

Your timing belt regulates the intervals of time between the pistons opening and closing. Without your timing belt, your motor won't function properly, and the pistons can break if the belt breaks while the motor is running.

If you're unsure of whether or not your need your timing belt replaced, you should take a look at the owner's manual. Otherwise, bring your vehicle in for an inspection.
