It is natural to have questions about certain aspects of your vehicle given how many of them there are to keep up with. People frequently want to know how some part impacts the operation of the whole machine. It makes sense, and it is logical to have at least a basic knowledge of the various parts of your vehicle.

One thing to note is about the timing belt on your vehicle. It is a critical element of what you have going in the vehicle. It is helpful in that it makes life easier because it controls the interaction between the crankshaft and the camshaft. Those two elements have to interact with one another just right to allow the valves to do what they are supposed to do. Fortunately, the timing belt keeps that all synced up just right.

Make sure to check on that timing belt approximately every 100,000 miles or so. That is when you are most likely to need a new one.
