What is a Timing Belt?

If you’ve noticed that your vehicle’s engine has been experiencing extreme misfires, then it may be a sign that your vehicle’s timing belt has failed. Another sign of a failing timing belt is when your vehicle randomly loses power. A timing belt is essential to maintaining a healthy engine.

Timing belts come in different forms, depending on your vehicle’s year, make, and model. Some vehicles have rubber timing belts while other vehicles have metal chain timing belts. Regardless of which belt you have; all belts serve the same purpose.

If your vehicle is between 60,000-100,000 miles, then it might be time to have your timing belt serviced or replaced. If your timing belt is loose, then it can simply be oiled and tightened. However, if your timing belt has failed completely, then it will need to be replaced completely. Feel free to stop by Team Kia of Bend. We will gladly service your vehicle.
