Timing Belt Replacement

Timing Belt Replacement

It’s cheaper to change the belt than the engine

Length of use:

A timing belt will last from 100,000km to 160,000km (60,000 to 105,000 miles) depending on the make and model of the car, how it’s driven and how well the vehicle is maintained. Other factors can contribute to how long the timing belt might last, including manufacturer defects. Check your owner’s manual to get an idea of how long timing belts on your particular make and model last or give us a call and schedule and inspection.

Preventative Care:

If you perform regular maintenance on your vehicle, your technician will typically notice timing belt wear when you bring the car in for servicing. If the mechanic suggests you replace the timing belt, it’s best to follow his advice. Doing so will save you a lot of trouble and money down the road.

Signs of Timing Belt Wear:

• Your high-mileage car is hard to start

• Your car is spewing out more exhaust than usual.

• The engine vibrates, causing your car to shake

• Your car shuts off while driving and spins over quicker than normal when you’re trying to restart it
