When it comes to your engine, timing is everything. If the camshaft and crankshaft stop turning in a specific rhythm with each other, the entire engine will stop functioning and the vehicle will shut down.

This synchronized operation of the valves and pistons in your engine is the concern of the timing belt. If this crucial belt begins to wear or weaken, you will notice that you have trouble starting your vehicle. You may also hear strange high-pitched sounds coming from your engine. If this is the case, your timing belt probably needs to be changed right away to prevent more serious engine problems from occurring.

It is also a good idea to read your owner's manual to find out how often your specific vehicle's manufacturer says your timing belt should be changed. If you have any questions about your timing belt or if you suspect any type of engine trouble in your vehicle, schedule a service appointment with us at Priority Nissan Williamsburg today.
