Tune-Up/ Timing Belt

When it comes to your engine, timing is everything. Responsible for synchronizing the crankshaft to the camshaft, the timing belt is essential for keeping your engine running smoothly and efficiently. It ensures that all the necessary valves open and shut on cue with the pistons. Book an appointment if you feel this critical item requires diagnosis or fixing.

Your Timing Belt Explained

Made of cogged rubber, your timing belt is threaded through pulleys that align the camshafts to the crankshaft. Since the camshafts rotate at half the speed of the crankshaft, the belt synchronizes their positions, ensuring your engine valves open and close at the proper times

Whats the actucal life of TIming Belt?

Typically, the lifespan of your timing belt is between 60,000 to 105,000 miles depending on the vehicle. However, we recommend that you have your timing belt regularly inspected for any imperfections during routine maintenance checks. Our ASE Certified technicians know the signs of a failing timing belt and can replace it before breaks.

The Function of a Timing Belt

The camshaft operates the valves in your engine to let in and out air and gas. The crankshaft moves the pistons up and down. These two systems have to operate in exact synchronization or damage could occur to the valves, pistons, engine or other nearby parts. It is the job of the timing belt to ensure this synchronization occurs by keeping each system turning at the correct rate.

Replacing a Timing Belt

Newer cars can usually go 100,000 miles before the timing belt needs replacement. Older vehicles may need it replaced at 60,000. It is important to note that if the water pump goes bad, the timing belt will usually need to also be replaced. This is because most often the belt has to be removed to replace the water pump.
