    About Ford Focus Timing Belt

    The timing belt in your Ford Focus connects the crankshaft to the camshaft, to make sure that they are both rotating in unison. As your car's crankshaft rotates to turn the wheels, the camshaft turns with perfect timing, opening and closing the intake and exhaust valves at the right intervals to efficiently power the engine. If the belt is to wear down and break, then the camshaft won't rotate, and the valves will likely get stuck. This can cause a cylinder collision that can lead to serious engine damage. You'll want to replace your Focus timing belt before that happens, and you can purchase one at AutoZone.

    When Should the Timing Belt Be Changed on a Ford Focus

    You should always aim to replace your timing belt before it breaks. A broken timing belt can cause significant enough engine damage that you may need an engine repair or rebuild. The right time to change your timing belt depends on the year, make, model, and engine size of the vehicle, but for most Focus models, it's between 60,000 and 100,000 miles. Check your owner's manual to find out how frequently you should change your timing belt.

    Timing Belt Replacement Cost

    Replacing a timing belt costs in the vicinity of $500 including labor, though it can be a little less or a lot more depending on the car. If you choose to take it on as a DIY job, you can find a new Ford Focus timing belt for under $50 or so.
