Timing Belt & Chain

How do I know if the timing belt needs replacing?

Simply put, the timing belt is responsible for keeping your engine running. It keeps major engine components like the crankshaft and camshaft in sync. If your timing belt or chain needs replacing, you might hear a ticking noise from the engine or notice your engine idle rough. It can also cause your engine to leak oil.

However, these symptoms can easily be misdiagnosed. Therefore, we suggest servicing your vehicle as soon as possible. Rest assured, our certified technicians will give you an accurate, transparent, and cost-effective plan to ensure your vehicle is healthy and keeps you moving for years to come.

How often should timing belt be replaced?

Most car manufacturers recommend replacing your timing belt every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. It is one of the most important wear items in your engine bay. Therefore, replacing it is a great way to keep your engine running for many miles.

How do I know if timing chain needs replacing?

Unlike the timing belt, the timing chain has no audible or visual queues. That is why it is important to replace based on your vehicle manufacturers recommendation to avoid any catastrophic faliures. 

How often should timing chain be serviced?

It's recommended to replace your timing chain every 80,000 to 100,000 miles.
