Timing Belt Replacement in Northglenn and Thornton, CO
The first question we are usually asked is, ‘What is the difference between a timing belt and a timing chain?” The answer is very simple. A timing belt is made of rubber, a timing chain is made of metal, much like the chain on a bicycle. The function of each is exactly the same - it keeps all the internal moving parts of an engine in sync.
It is extremely important to keep your timing belt serviced at the proper time to make sure your engine is ready to work for you. Neglecting this service can lead to further, and more costly, engine issues.
