A timing belt is an internal engine belt or chain that tells the valvetrain of your engine what to do based upon the events of the crankshaft and pistons. It controls the intake and exhaust valves, creating just the right amount of gases in the cylinder for each engine stroke. Sometimes, it is this belt that also turns an internal water pump, depending on engine design. The proper operation of this belt is critical to engine operation, as a broken timing chain or belt can result in a loss of cooling, or even complete destruction of the engine.
