A timing belt is a crucial part of most engines. The engine requires an exact mixture of fuel and air in the combustion chamber. The camshaft opens and closes the valves that allow for the fuel and air mixture to enter and exit the combustion chamber. These are called the intake and exhaust valves. The crankshaft turns the timing belt, which turns the camshaft, which opens and closes the valves, and allows the engine pistons to move up and down. With so much riding on the thick rubber timing belt, you can see just how crucial it is to have RepairTech Automotive and DIY in Kissimmee, FL maintain, or replace a timing belt when needed.
