Engine timing belt replacement

Can you afford a new engine? Do you want to spend money on a cylinder head repair that could have been avoided? If the answer is no, and you want to avoid costly repairs, you'll need to keep up with timing belt maintenance.

A timing belt, also known as a cam belt, is a component of an internal combustion engine that regulates the timing of the engine's valves. The timing belt or timing chain connects the crankshaft to the camshaft, which controls the opening and closing of the engine valves.

Good timing belt maintenance is essential for a long and healthy engine life. Maintaining your engine's timing belt replacement services in accordance with the vehicle manufacturer will ensure that your investment lasts a long time. Is it time to change your timing belt?

5 signs that your timing belt needs to be replaced

  • Engine noise - Engines make noise, but a timing belt that breaks makes a couple of distinct sounds in most cases. These sounds will be the ticking and/or squealing of the particular belt. When a timing belt wears down to the point of having to be replaced, it can start making these noises inside the engine.What is that rattling? This is essentially a warning sign that should raise some red flags in your mind, indicating that you should take action. Since the timing belt is such an important engine component, if you notice any unusual noises, you should contact an expert timing belt mechanic as soon as possible.
  • Engine misfire/idle speed - The firing order of your engine is precisely controlled by the timing belt. The teeth of the timing belt form a tight, crisp connection with all the gears and pulleys in the timing system. With this in mind, consider how this allows the engine to run smoothly. The belt and teeth begin to wear over time, and as they do, this vital joint begins to loosen and slip. When timing belts wear out, misfiring and rough idling can occur. As the timing belt wears, it stretches, causing the tight tolerances required for a smooth-running engine to deteriorate, as well as your fuel economy. That's when the misfires, erratic idle and check engine light try to alert you that something is wrong.
  • Is your oil pressure light illuminated?

Can you afford a new engine? Do you want to pay for costly cylinder head repairs that you could have avoided? An automotive timing belt, also known as a cam belt, is a component of an internal combustion engine that regulates the timing of the engine's valves. The timing belt or timing chain connects the crankshaft to the camshaft, which controls the opening and closing of the engine valves.

Replacing the timing belt

Timing belts on some engines with overhead camshafts have a limited service life. Because chains are noisier and more expensive to manufacture, automobile manufacturers use these belts in place of more durable chains. The mileage at which the timing belt MUST be replaced is specified in your vehicle owner's manual. These intervals range from 60,000 miles to 110,000 miles. Check your owner's manual to see what is recommended for your engine, or call us today for a free educational estimate and breakdown on your vehicle's timing belt system.

Failure to replace the belt or chain can lead to engine failure!

Acura, BMW, Chrysler, Daihatsu, Fiat, Fiat, Ford, GM, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, Isuzu, Kia, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Porsche, Suzuki, Toyota, Volkswagen and Volvo are known victims of this failure. All of them could have been avoided in most cases. We fix it if you break it, is a company motto.

Even if there is no problem with the water pump, some technicians may recommend replacing it during a timing belt replacement. This is because 90 percent of the labor to replace the water pump has already been done with the timing belt work, and some technicians consider replacing the pump at this time to be good insurance. What happens when the timing belt fails on an interference engine? The pistons will collide with the open valves, causing significant damage.

Timing belt problems

One of the most common reasons cars are towed to our shop is a broken timing belt. Maintain it rather than break it. A rough idle, hard starting, a backfiring condition, diesling (a situation where your engine continues to run after your ignition has been turned off), loss of power, fast idle funny are all symptoms of a timing belt starting to fail. There are many more possible problems, but not much time in my day.

It is critical to keep the timing belt system in good working order. A broken timing belt can cause major problems with your engine as well as your bank account. There's a reason timing belts are replaced as preventive maintenance, want to waste money on a new or used engine replacement? Call today, don't break your timing belt, keep it in good condition.

  • Idle Problems - Does your engine misfire when idling? Your distributor may be worn. A worn distributor can make it difficult, if not impossible, to precisely adjust ignition timing.
  • Backfiring - Backfiring occurs when unburned fuel explodes into your exhaust system. Carburetor problems, vacuum leaks or improper valve lash adjustment are the most common causes of backfiring. However, it has also been linked to improper timing adjustment. Sometimes it's as simple as a faulty distributor. It's time to go through and time it.
  • Dieseling is a problem that occurs when your engine mimics the heavy sound of a diesel engine after the ignition is turned off. Worn timing components are a major source of this problem. Surprisingly, a faulty distributor can also cause this problem.
  • A knocking or pinging sound when your engine is running can be caused by a condition known as detonation. Detonation is the spontaneous combustion of exhaust gases after the spark plug fires. Detonation can cause major damage or even catastrophic engine failure. Do you have a knocking or pinging problem in your vehicle?
