Timing Belt Service
The timing belt is one of the most important components on the vehicles engine. It keeps the upper and lower parts of the engine in “Time”. Failure of the belt can cause catastrophic damage to the internal engine components. It is recommended on most vehicles that have a timing belt to be replaced at 90-100k intervals. We also recommend replacing other components that are driven by the timing belt such as the water pump, oil seals and any pulleys that are driven by the timing belt. We recommend a complete timing belt “Job” as opposed to just replacing the belt. Doing so will save a tremendous amount of labor cost if the water pump leaks or and oil seal starts to leak later on.
Having the timing belt serviced at regular intervals will keep the engine from destroying its self from the inside out. You will also have peace of mind that the engine will continue to run in “Time” and keep you off the side of the road.
