When the timing belt breaks, if the belt is bitten, the valve is stopped and the engine is stopped. If the engine is idling during the rupture, it means that there is a gap between the piston at the top of the stroke and the opened valve. The rupture in both cases, the only damage to the timing belt itself. However, if the engine is an "interference fit" design, the piston and the valve occupy the same space, and there is no gap between them, so that other parts will be damaged quickly, such as the valve being bent and the piston being stamped. These failures will cost customers more and face the hassle of not being able to use the car for a long time. Therefore, customers should be aware of the importance of regular inspections and timely replacement of timing belts. At the same time, users should also be aware that replacing the timing belt during routine maintenance is much cheaper than dragging it into the repair shop for overhaul.
Increased income, busy employees and customers' deeper understanding of regular maintenance will benefit you. Some repair shops overlook the maintenance opportunities offered by regular maintenance of timing belts. As a repair shop operator, you should remember that the vehicle is in your store and you have the opportunity to repair it and satisfy the customer. This is a good opportunity for you to make money. However, if the belt is damaged while the vehicle is in motion, the car will be towed to other repair shops nearby. This means that you not only lose the opportunity to customers and repair vehicles, but also lose the possibility of making money.
The timing belt is not broken, it does not mean that it is no problem. As the belt is used more and more old, it tends to stretch beyond the range that the tensioning device can compensate, thus producing a timing sprocket slip. The wear of the teeth and the adhesion of lubricating oil can also cause slippage. During the inspection, if the belt has a decrease in hardness, abrasion, fiber breakage, or cracks or cracks, it indicates that the belt is damaged and cannot be used any more. Next, check the sprocket fault. Damaged sprockets can “burn out” belt material and exacerbate belt tooth wear. A sprocket failure can also cause the valve train to create greater resistance to the timing belt.
Timing belt replacement: three years or 50,000 kilometers. New car time can be extended appropriately!
