A vital organ for your car’s engine, the timing system synchronises the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves.
The timing is one of a set of components that regulate the passage of air-fuel and combustible gas mixture.
There are two types:
With a toothed belt (in rubber), which synchronises the engine drive shaft movement with that of the camshaft, transferring it to other components too, like the water pump.
With a chain (with rollers), with the same characteristics but stronger, more precise and longer-lasting.
