The complexity of the vehicle's engine is so complicated to look at from the viewpoint of those who are not into engine mechanics. Probably, you will wonder how these engine parts are interconnected and how their functions are chained together to make your vehicle run accordingly. But as a driver, it is a must to know at least the basics of your vehicle's engine.
A vehicle basically is operated by an internal combustion engine which is composed of various parts. These parts have individual task to do and have a chain reaction that will end up to a single output and that is to make your vehicle operational. The proper timing in the operation of these various parts is so important to synchronize the actions and deliver an efficient output. In particular, the engine valves where the fuel passes through should be opened and closed at correct time interval; otherwise the engine will malfunction and will cause poor driving performance.
The engine parts that are responsible for the opening and closing of the engine valves are the crankshaft and the camshaft. The camshaft is the part that controls the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves in coherence with the up and down movement of the pistons in the cylinders. The crankshaft is the one responsible for converting the movement of the pistons into circular motions. Though these two parts are unique to each other in terms of functionality, they have to have a synchronous movement. To keep these two parts moving in time with each other, timing belt is used.
The Hyundai timing belt provides a quiet and flexible connection between the crankshaft and the camshaft. It is usually made of rubber but newer designs of Hyundai timing belts called the highly-saturated nitrile are proven to be more resistive against high temperatures. The drawback of timing belts made of rubber is that, it easily degrades when exposed to high temperature which is inherent in the engine system. The deterioration of the rubberized timing belts become faster especially when it contaminated with oil leaks.
The quality of the Hyundai timing belt should be kept in superior condition to keep your Hyundai on the road. It must be regularly checked since timing belts give no warnings when it is about to give up its function. Likewise, the Hyundai timing belt is not like any other engine part that you could easily remove and replace. You need the skills of professional mechanic to replace your defective Hyundai timing belts. You'll probably need also assistance in looking for the replacement part. In such case, Parts Train is right here to provide you with heavy duty timing belts that best suit the specifications of any Hyundai model.
