The engine’s timing belt drives the camshaft(s) from the rotation of the crankshaft. The belt keeps the pistons and valves in “time” during operation. Serious internal engine damage can occur when the piston and valves come into contact with each other “out-of-time.”
Replacement interval not to exceed 60,000 miles
Failure to replace the timing belt at the recommended interval may lead to belt fatigue and breakage, which can result in costly engine repairs.
