Your Timing Belt Manages The Critical Timing In Your Engine To Produce Combustion

The internal combustion engine is an amazing invention. It is a complex system of individual parts and the culmination of many different processes to achieve operation. The thing about that operation is that all the parts involved need to perform their functions just right at exactly the right time in order for it to work right.

The timing of all of these things is critical, which is where your timing belt (or chain) come in. Your timing belt is what allows your crankshaft and camshaft to synchronize their rotations so that your engine's valves open and close at just the right time during the intake stroke and exhaust stroke of each cylinder. If this timing gets out of sync the internal combustion process will not execute correctly and failure will occur.

If you have any other questions about your timing belt or chain then call or visit our service center here at Medford BMW.
