Citroen Timing Belt Replacement Cost – All Models

One of the essential components of car’s engine is “Timing Belt”.  The two main “shafts” of engine, the Crankshaft and the Camshafts are connected and turned together at the right time by this timing belt.

Timing Belt with Function

Timing Belt is rubber belt with teeth that transfers the power of camshaft (valves controller) pulley to the crankshaft ( pistons controller) pulley and vice versa in engine without loosing hold at the right time. Its tighten with Tensioner to ensure grip on both sides.

Why Timing Belts?

  • Firstly, the valves need to open and close concurrently to let the air into the engine, which allows the burning of fuel and production of energy whereas incorrect timing can limit the air intake and a bad ability to burn fuel.
  • Secondly, without the timing belt, the pistons and valves don’t work together and collide. This is a big disaster, as the valves are very delicate and bend easily. One collision with the pistons causes a costly repair.

Timing Chain performs same functions as belt but both are different. Have a look at Timing Chain VS Timing Belt Comparison. Few people get confuse and think as Timing and Serpentine belt are same, but they are different.

Symptoms of Defective Timing Belt

Being rubber, belt may break resulting the car to stop. Some of the few belt symptoms to diagnose defective timing belt are:

  • Clicking sound from the engine.
  • Engine won’t ignite.
  • Engine might misfires.
  • Smoke from the engine.
  • Oil Leakage from the engine.

To prevent the engine from damage, one should need to replace the timing belt immediately as such symptoms occur. Otherwise, it will cost much more to repair the engine.
