    Changing a timing belt is really a time taking thing. I suggest you to visit a car mechanic for changing of timing belt. Try to find a good car mechanic for fixing or changing timing belt. You can do yourself if you have knowledge and experience of changing timing belt. Otherwise do not do yourself. Best of Luck!
    A timing belt is a very important part of an internal combustion engine . Timing belt controls the timing of the engine's valves. In the past, timing chains were employed in position of timing belts. It has taken the place of timing chains that were universal until the 1970s and 1980s. Some manufacturers, such as BMW, are famous for utilizing timing chains, because of their durability. The term "timing belt" is bestowed because if its flat belt with integral teeth, since there is no timing or synchronization involved.
    A timing belt is made of rubber with high-tensile fibers. Rubber degrades with higher temperatures, and with acquaintance with motor oil. Thus the life expectancy of a timing belt is reduced in sultry or leaky engines. Newer or expensive timing belts are introduced which are made of temperature resistant materials such as "highly-saturated nitrile" (HSN). The life of the bolstering cords is highly changed by water and antifreeze. This signifies that extraordinary precautions ought to be taken for off road applications to find a way to allow water to drain away or be sealed from contact with the belt.
