Timing Belt Replacement

Your timing belt is a key component of your vehicle’s engine system. As the name suggests it controls the timing of the engine’s valves. Eventually these belts wear out and need to be replaced just as you need to replace engine and transmission fluid.

Don’t Ignore the Symptoms

If you have noticed your engine making ticking or rattling noises, or have had issues with it turning over, you are likely in need of a replacement. Other common symptoms include oil leaks in front of the motor or engine misfires. In modern vehicles many of these symptoms will be accompanied by a check engine light. Do not ignore these symptoms! Replacing your timing belt is inexpensive. Catastrophic engine failure due to a broken timing belt is not.

Scheduled Maintenance

Predicting when your timing belt will finally wear out is difficult to determine. On average you should expect your belt to last 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Even if you are not experiencing the symptoms of a timing belt that is ready to be replaced, your second and third factory scheduled maintenance are key periods to check your timing belt and possibly replace it even if you’re not sure if there is an issue. A tiny investment now could save you from having to pay much more out of pocket later.
