In order to run properly, your Honda needs the engine's valves and pistons to pump at the exact right time. In order for that to happen, the camshaft and crankshaft must be in sync. If they're not, engine parts get damaged. Badly. Fortunately, your factory timing belt makes sure that your camshaft and crankshaft are synchronized. The thing is, it's not always easy to tell when your timing belts is starting to go out. In fact, yours can fail with little to no warning. That's because the reinforcing cords on the inside may have lost their tensile strength and grown weak. Outwardly, though, the belt looks fine.

- Engine misfires
