You need to be aware of the basic elements of your engine and how they operate. You also need to understand the manner in which certain elements of your engine need to be monitored and maintained. The timing belt in your engine is one such element of your engine you need to generally understand.

The timing belt is responsible for coordinating two other prime elements of an engine, the crankshaft, and the camshaft. The crankshaft manages the operation of the pistons. Meanwhile, the camshaft coordinates the opening and closing of the valves. The timing belt synchronizes these operations.

You need to make sure that your timing belt is in prime condition. If it wears too significantly, it won't function correctly. More significantly, if it breaks, it can cause serious damage to an engine. The service team at Volvo Cars of Monterey in Seaside, CA is ready to assist you with your service needs.
