Timing Belt Replacement
Most cars are built with either a timing belt or a timing chain. The timing belt basically keeps your engine running. If it breaks, your car won't run (and for some vehicles may even cause internal engine damage). Regularly replacing the timing belt helps to ensure the belt won’t break which keeps the engine running and prevents costly engine damage
It's always a good idea to replace the water pump, idler pulleys and tensioners anytime the timing belt is replaced. This quick video gives a good overview of where these parts are located on your engine.
Because it takes so much labor to replace the timing belt, you'll save on future labor costs by preventatively replacing these parts before they go bad.
If your car has a timing belt, it will need to be replaced periodically. Every car is different, but most cars need to have the timing belt replaced every 90-105,000 miles. Check with your owners manual (or ask us!) to see when the recommended replacement interval is for your vehicle.
