Sooner or later, timing belt replacement on your Cadillac in Sun Lakes
is an inevitability. A number of parts are necessary for an engine to run properly, and hidden at the front of the engine, the timing belt is one of them. As for what a timing belt does, that's simple. A timing belt sets the way your valves and pistons work and stops pistons from impacting into closed valves. A timing belt also helps the camshaft and the crankshaft perform better.
Cadillac Timing Belt Replacement in Sun Lakes and Information About Timing Belts
Older model Cadillac autos needed their timing belts replaced at 50,000 mile increments. Modern day Cadillac timing belts last a bit longer, between 60,000 and 105,000 miles. When in doubt, look over your car or truck's owner's manual for a replacement schedule. A few car makers don't include timing belt schedules as a cost saving measure. However, as timing belts are made of rubber, they can wear out, or the teeth of a timing belt can be damaged. A good rule of thumb to remember is that if your Cadillac auto has 90,000 miles or more on it, timing belt replacement in Sun Lakes should be done as quickly as possible.
Timing belts are used by non-interference engines and interference engines as well. In an interference engine, the timing belt must function, or it can cause distorted valves or ultimately, engine damage. You would do well to call an timing belt repair facility in Sun Lakes and get your Cadillac timing belt replaced on your own volition, not because it breaks down on you.
