Timing belts are an absolute necessity when it comes to your Lexus' engine functionality. Their purpose is to connect the crankshaft and the camshaft and synchronize them to the correct timing. Without a genuine timing belt, the engine design would be very constricted as the crankshaft and camshaft would have to be connected to each other via gears. Made out of rubber composite, OEM timing belts are covered in metal or polymer to make them more durable. On top of it all, they do not need to be lubricated. It can be difficult to determine whether or not you should change the timing belt, mainly because it requires the timing belt to be removed. Because of this, it is simply cheaper to replace it with a factory original timing belt in intervals specified by the manufacturer. Otherwise, you can face catastrophic engine failure rendering your vehicle unusable, on top of the extremely high price of repair. As a recommendation, you should also replace timing belt tensioners when changing the timing belt.
