About Acura MDX Timing Belt
Through the camshaft's turning, the Acura MDX timing belt ensures that the engine's intake and exhaust valves are opened and closed at the right timing and order. When your engine parts skip a beat, or in more technical terms "jumps time", your engine experiences a dip in its performance. When OEM parts in this type of engine breaks, the pistons move out of position and hits the valves, bending them. This is why your vehicle's engine is equipped with its own Acura MDX timing belt.
