Timing belt

Your timing belt should be replaced every 50-70,000 miles. Vehicle manufactures have specified the replacement intervals for timing belts.


In an interference engine, the valves and piston share the same air space. They never touch, unless you’re timing belt breaks or skips, and this is a catastrophic failure that requires removing the head and replacing bent valves.


Non-interference engines do not risk this contact if the timing belt goes. Nonetheless, either can leave you stranded, so regular timing belt replacement is very important.


Replacing the water pump, belt tensioner, and pulleys is also a very critical decision. Our ASE certified technicians have to remove these components just to get to the timing belt. If one of these components fail down the road it can cause serious damage. This is the better safe than sorry approach.
