Timing Gears and Sprockets
Timing gears and sprockets are a part of your vehicle's engine and its auxiliary components. Their construction and dimensions determine one of the most important factors in the functioning of your engine: timing. The timing gears or sprockets are connected by the timing belt to the crankshaft and camshaft at each end. They also keep the timing belt centered. The main purpose of the timing gear is to time the opening and the closing of the cylinder valves at the right moments to ensure that the engine gets the right amount of air/fuel mixture. The timing is determined by the number of increments on the side of the gear or sprocket.
The timing gears and sprockets can become worn out over time which would cause timing belt to slip. This would result in a loss of the timing, causing your engine to misfire. If your engine turns over but fails to start or has a rough idle i.e. a shuddering or vibration felt when your car is idling or in park, it is likely that your timing gear or sprocket is at fault. Faulty timing gears and sprockets will eventually damage the timing belt, as well. If you suspect that your timing gears and sprockets are the underlying cause of your engine issues, you should have them checked out and replace them at the earliest to avoid exacerbating the problem.
