What's the Difference Between a Drive Belt and a Timing Belt?
Are you wondering what the difference is between these two belts? The timing belt connects the crankshaft to the camshaft and will help your engine work properly. On the other hand, timing belts control the pistons and valves in your Honda sedan or SUV. The drive belt controls several other components, including the alternator, power steering pump, and AC compressor.
Signs to Change Your Belts
There are a few ways to tell that it's time to change your belts. One way to tell is if you notice any excessive wear or cracking. If that's the case, you'll want to change them as soon as you can.
If you see that your belt has a shiny or glossy appearance, it probably needs to be replaced or tightened. Your belt may have gone stiff. When this happens, it will not have good flexibility.
Another sign is if your Honda vehicle is hydroplaning. Hydroplaning causes power loss to some of your other engine accessories.
