There are a lot of parts on your car, and you might have heard of a timing belt, but you might not know exactly what it does. The timing belt is a fairly simple piece on your car, but its function is extremely important, and if it breaks, your car is in big trouble. At Redding Kia in Redding, CA, we love telling our customers all about cars so that they can take better care of them, so here are a few pieces of information that you should know about timing belts.

First of all, you should know that there are plenty of ways that you can damage your engine, and if your timing belt snaps when the car is on, you'll have thousands of dollars in car repair bills.

You can save yourself a lot of money by having the belt checked according to your user manual. Most vehicles need a new one somewhere between 60,000 and 100,000 miles.
