Chevrolet Timing Belt

Chevrolet Timing Belt

Chevrolet Timing Belt is usually made of synthetic rubber and is responsible for turning the camshaft at the right speed in relation to the crankshaft. It is also known as the cam belt, and ensures that valves in the engine cylinders open at the correct time.

are replaced, correct belt tension is critical - too loose and the belt will whip, too tight and it will whine and put excess strain on the bearings of the cogs. In either case timingbelts life will be drastically shortened.

It is absolutely essential to replace Chevrolet timing belts at interval, as if the belt snaps whilst in motion, it can result in serious and irrevocable damage being done to the engine.

The job of the timing belt is to control the opening and closing of the engine’s valves by turning the camshaft and crankshaft at the right speeds. We stock a large range of durable timing belts for all types of car. It’s essential to keep the timing belt at the right level of tension. Too loose and it will flap about – which could result in the engine valves opening at the wrong time and being struck by the pistons; too tight and it will put excess strain on the cog bearings. The correct tension is maintained by tensioner pulleys, which should be checked regularly and replaced if worn to ensure the timing belt does not malfunction. There are visual signs of wear and tear you can look out for in the timing belt such as cracks, shredding, sagging or brittleness. In addition you may hear a squealing sound if the belt is not turning properly. However, the timing belt can just snap without warning, so it’s important you don’t neglect to replace it in line with your car manufacturer’s specification, even if you don’t notice any signs of damage. The general rule of thumb is every four years or 60,000 miles, or slightly less often for newer vehicles.
