Timing Belt Service

The timing belt is located in the engine compartment behind the drive belts. Its job is to keep the crankshaft in sync with the camshaft, ensuring the proper timing and operation of the engine valves and in the engine.

Ignoring the replacement of the timing belt as part of your scheduled maintenance could result in major engine failure down the road. 80% of all newer engines use timing belts.

When replacing the timing belt, we recommend to replace the water pump, tensioner and pulleys. If the pulleys and tensioners fail after only replacing the belt, it could cause valve or piston damage and lead to more expensive repairs.
