ABOUT OUR TIMING BELT SERVICE
Our expert technicians will carefully examine both your timing belt and drive belt tensioner to look for signs of wear or damage. Based on what we find, we’ll recommend whether or not it’s time for a replacement and let you decide whether a replacement is right for you and your vehicle. Our replacement service includes:
- Replacement of all worn belts as needed
- Adjusting the fit of any newly-installed belts and their related components
Why is a timing belt check important?
Your timing belt is crucial to your engine by helping to open and close your engine’s valves.
A broken or worn-out belt can render your vehicle inoperable. Replacing belts at the first sign of wear helps avoid unexpected breakdowns, so both you and your car can stay on the go.
How often should I replace my timing belt or drive belt tensioner?
Because belts are a critical part of your engine, they generally need to be replaced every 30,000 - 60,000 miles (50,000 km - 100,000 km).
