Automotive Tips from Cayenne: Timing Belt Overview


What timing you have?  Hi it's Cayenne and I am going to give you a quick Timing Belt Overview.......so let's get barkin'!

In your engine, valves over each combustion chamber open to allow fresh air in, close during the combustion event, and then other valves open to let out the exhaust. All of this happens over and over thousands of times a minute when you are driving around Los Altos. The timing belt’s important job is to make sure that all of this happens as it should – at precisely the right time. If the timing is off, your engine won’t run efficiently or maybe not at all – so a good timing belt is important. If it should break, you could end up at Allied Auto Works with expensive engine damage.

Ask your friendly and professional Allied Auto Works service advisors Matt and Travis when your timing belt is scheduled for replacement.

Give us a call today and tell them Cayenne said you were just in the nick of time!
