Why is the Timing Belt in My VW So Important?
The timing belt inside your Volkswagen engine synchronizes the camshafts, opening and closing valves at precise times. Without it your VW would go nowhere and, if your timing belt breaks, you'd be facing significant engine damage and costly repair.
When Should I Have the Timing Belt Replaced?
Timing belts are built to last for many miles, usually between 60,000 and 100,000. Due to the location of the timing belt, it's not easy to check on its condition easily, but there are some warning signs of a failing timing belt that you should be aware of. If you hear a ticking noise coming from your engine, have times when your engine won't turn over, are experiencing engine misfires or you see oil leaking from the front of the motor, you should have your VW timing belt replaced as soon as possible.
