There's a memorable quote from the movie 500 Days of Summer: "So, what if I'd gone to the movies? What if I had gone somewhere else for lunch? What if I'd gotten there 10 minutes later? It was...it was meant to be." Yes, it's all about timing-or the right timing, that is. In life, love, and, yes, even in your car. It's actually far from being romantic, but even your engine needs proper timing and the right moment to get its act together, just like how a suitor bids his time when courting a girl he likes. A brand that guarantees the correct timing for your engine is TSU, the trusted manufacturer of anything related to timing assemblies.

Almost all mechanisms in your car need to be operated at the right time for maximum efficiency. That's why misfires and idle starts can be pretty annoying to most vehicle owners. Each stroke of the cylinder must be accurate, like the ticking of a clock, or else the engine won't be able to achieve the most optimum fuel combustion. But aside from the cylinders, another assembly also needs to be driven and operated at the right time to guarantee utmost performance. The timing assembly, as its name implies, must turn and function with painstaking precision or else your car would be inoperable. You can get this precise and accurate operation with a TSU timing chain, a reliable metal chain that doesn't miss or skip a beat when turning.

Derailment is one of the common problems of timing chains. Either that or the chain misses or skips a tooth. Both can be dangerous because several components will stop functioning at the same time, including the water and oil pump, to name a few. But more importantly, when the chain becomes loose, the connection between the camshaft and the crankshaft will also be disrupted, and this will throw the rhythm of the valves off balance. With a derailed chain, the valves won't open and close at the right time anymore, and this could affect every stroke of the pistons. Prevent derailment with a TSU timing guide rail. In order to keep the chain tightened, a TSU timing chain tensioner is often placed in most cars.
