Timing belt replacement service:

Timing belt replacement service is essential to engine longevity. With a timing belt replacement service there are critical facts to consider. Furthermore what parts do I need to replace? Are all parts the same quality? Do all repair shops offer the same quality of repair? Are prices driven by fair market value or “bait and switch?”

Basic how it works timing belt illustration

First of all let’s talk about how timing  belts work. Timing belts are used to make the engine run smoothly. These belts have teeth (cogs) and connect the camshaft to the crankshaft. In concert they drive the engine’s mechanical function. They need to be changed as often as the 60,000 miles interval. Some vehicles allow for less frequent timing belt replacement. When a timing belt fails the engine is usually in danger. However “non interference engines are safe from timing belt breakage. This does not mean other problems such as overheating will not occur.

Is DIY the answer?

Videos on Youtube make timing belt replacement look easy but the question is are you willing to put your engine at risk to try to save money.
