Timing belt consists of a chain and a flat belt. It runs over the belt pulley. The result is a positive drive. Absence of the timing belt slippage is possible as the teeth prevent its slippage. Due to it higher forces can be transmitted then by a flat belt. It is necessary to lubricate the chain, while the timing belt does not need this. The materials used are polyurethane or neoprene, often combined with fibreglass. Due to their special characteristics timing belt can serve as a steering one. That is why they are used in many cars instead of the timing chain.
Timing belt crack is not obvious. This can happen at any time and often results in additional damage because of the broken belt moves with great energy through the engine compartment. To minimize the possibility of a crack it is necessary to follow the terms of replacement. Also it is very important the timing belt tension to be optimal. An improperly adjusted belt tension significantly increases the risk of failure. It is possible to replace the timing belt by yourself if you have experience.
Timing belt is not expensive. Therefore, it is reasonable to shorten the interval of its replacement. Thus, you will reduce the risk of crack. This is especially good to save on further repair.
