Everything You Need to Know About Timing Belts
If you’re wondering what that squeaking noise is coming from your engine, it may be time to replace your timing belt. A timing belt is a long, thin belt that connects the crankshaft to the camshaft in an engine. It’s responsible for ensuring that the valves open and close at the correct times, which is essential for the engine to run properly.
The typical wear and tear on a timing chain/belt include stretching, fraying, and cracking. Over time, these problems can lead to the belt slipping or breaking entirely, causing serious damage to the engine. If you’re overdue for a timing chain/belt replacement, don’t wait any longer – get it replaced today!
A Timing Belt Service includes :
- Replacing the belt
- Inspecting the belt tensioner
- Inspecting the belt idler pulleys
- Inspecting the belt for damage
- Lubricating the belt and timing chain (if applicable)
