What is Interference?

The timing belt controls the movement and timing of the crankshaft and camshaft, which in turn move the pistons and valves that are always moving, opening, and closing while your engine is running. Think of it like a bicycle chain that’s linked to different gears. If the teeth on the timing chain wear out, it might not work to keep all these parts working in perfect harmony. They might violently collide, which can be catastrophic for the engine. This is called interference and can be easily avoided with timely timing belt replacement. To find out when your vehicle’s belt should be replaced, check your owner’s manual. The vehicle manufacturer will include the information you need to know so that you can get service in advance of any issues. If you have trouble, just reach out to one of our team members! We’re here to help drivers in and around Tacoma, Washington.
