Timing Belt Repair

The many components and moving parts in your engine must work together to run your vehicle every day. One part keeps everything in sync and coordinated: the timing belt.

When the timing belt is worn down with age and miles, your car becomes at risk. If the teeth on the belt slip or the belt breaks, the components slip out of sync. Valves, pistons, and pumps can fail, break, or seize. Instead of routine maintenance and a new timing belt, your vehicle may need thousands of dollars of engine repair.

The best way to avoid this damage is following your manufacturer’s recommended maintenance schedule for timing belt replacement. Most vehicles will need a new timing belt around 100,000 miles, depending on your driving habits and normal wear and tear of the vehicle.

When your vehicle is due for a timing belt replacement, don’t delay. Timing belt services can prevent extensive damage to your vehicle’s engine, especially in interference engine models, saving you thousands of dollars in repair.
