Have you spent time thinking about the timing belt on your vehicle? The answer is probably no, but it may be something that you should focus on at least to some extent. The timing belt plays a critical role in getting your vehicle to function at all.

There are special valves in your vehicle that allow air and gas to flow into and out of the engine just right. Lacking that flow means that you could have a vehicle stall out or worse. Don't allow yourself to get behind on this. You need to be checking up on that timing belt right away.

Mechanics generally say that about 100,000 miles is when a person should consider replacing the timing belt. That is about the point when they start to wear out, and it is safest to replace them when they show signs of wear like this. Ask your mechanic how the health of your timing belt is looking the next time you are there.
