A timing belt ensures that your crankshaft and camshaft(s) are synchronized. In other words, the timing belt keeps these components (an those attached to them) in time with one another. Many vehicles today use a timing belt rather than a timing chain. Most vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing the timing belt anywhere from 60,000 miles up to 105,000 miles depending upon the vehicle. We will advise you accordingly if your vehicle has a timing belt and when this service is needed. We have the tools and expertise to perform this service.[driveContent url=”http://drivecontent.autonettv.com/ynt/lshark/14c875d2-2d7b-4229-8d1b-3232cd53e259″ width=”600″ height=”450″]
In many cases the timing belt in a vehicle also drives the water pump. As the belt turns the water pump and camshaft(s) it is guided by an idler pulley and a tensioner pulley. All of these components are important to the function of the timing belt. Therefore it is our policy to replace all the timing belt driven components when we replace the timing belt.
