The Durability and Strength of VW Original Timing Belts

Your Volkswagen’s timing belt performs the vital function of ensuring your engine is able to properly burn fuel, affecting fuel consumption and emissions. Located at the front of the engine, it connects the crankshaft and the camshaft, keeping the moving parts synchronized and preventing impact between pistons and valves, which could lead to engine damage.

Even after extended wear, your timing belt should never stretch. This throws off your engine timing and results in increased fuel consumption and emissions. If your timing belt snaps, the pistons will strike the valves that are left open, bending or breaking them. At the very least, the new cylinder head will have to be replaced. Worse, it could cause engine failure in a matter of seconds.

Service intervals vary depending on the model and engine, but usually start at 90,000 km. However, the timing belt should be replaced at least once every 6 years along with your water pump to take advantage of cost savings.
