Your car has to have a timing belt in order to function properly. The timing belt controls the interaction between the crankshaft and the camshaft. Those two parts are used to make sure the valves function properly to let air and gas in and out of the engine as it is supposed to. Only when that is all working in tandem like this can the engine function properly and the vehicle get you where you need to go.

Consider keeping the timing belt up to date by getting it replaced approximately every 100,000 miles. That is the length of time that the average mechanic is going to suggest to you, and that recommendation will serve you well.

It is up to you to maintain your vehicle in proper working condition, and you can do that well by keeping up with some of these mileage indicators. The timing belt is a big one that should not be forgotten.
