Drive system

Driving timing belt and auxiliary drive reliability

Connecting the crankshaft to the camshaft(s) to control an engine’s valves, timing belts or chains have always played an essential role in proper engine function. Today, the auxiliary drive system is becoming equally important to overall vehicle functionality, as modern cars cover more demanding consumer requirements like comfort, electronic devices, fuel efficiency and others.
