Several belts are installed on your Honda, and no, we don't mean seat belts. Depending on your model, your vehicle should possess a drive belt. The drive belt travels around numerous pulleys that operate the alternator, power steering pump, and water pump. The drive belt will also operate the air conditioning compressor on vehicles that are equipped with A/C. Over time like any other belt made from rubber, it will begin to wear, and its replacement will become necessary. The belt can also become damaged, contaminated, or dry out. If your drive belt ever fails, the outcome could be catastrophic; it can result in engine overheating, loss of power steering, inoperative charging system, and inoperative A/C.
Your timing belt is an essential component of your engine. It is attached to the engine's camshafts and helps to rotate them. In turn, this opens and closes the intake and exhaust valves to help your engine operate at peak performance and efficiency. On a hand full of Honda models, the timing belt also operates the water pump, which plays a large part in keeping your engine cool by circulating engine coolant. On some Hondas, you can find a second smaller timing belt that drives a balancer shaft that helps to reduce engine vibration. Like the drive belt, the timing belt also needs to be inspected for cracks, deterioration, and wear. If the timing belt is not monitored, it may snap and cause severe engine damage. Please follow your owner's manual to find out the timing belt replacement interval.
