A timing belt regulates the functioning of different parts of your vehicle’s engine. If it breaks, your car will stop running at best, and your engine could even be ruined. Yet the symptoms of a bad timing belt can easily be overlooked. These include a clicking or chattering noise, a misfiring engine, and lower fuel economy.
In general, the timing belt should be replaced in accordance with your vehicle manufacturer’s instructions, or somewhere between 60,000 and 100,000 miles. Your auto technician can check the belt for signs of wear and let you know if it is time to replace it.
