Timing Belt Repair & Replace

Timing Belt Repair/Replacement

Timing belt repair is critical, you can save money by having it inspected and then replaced if needed (Honestly is key), replacing a timing belt before it breaks can save you thousands of dollars.  

Some cars, when the timing belt breaks, it damages the valves and other internal parts, creating a very expensive repair.

What does a timing belt do?:  The valves are in the head (on top of the motor), pistons are in the block (bottom of the motor), keeping these two parts in sequence to allow the motor to function is where the Timing Belt works.  It connects the pistons to the valves through a belt system to allow the parts to work together.

Tip:  Anytime you get your timing belt replaced, it’s a good idea to save the invoice showing the replacement and the shop information in case you sell the car.  The new owner will value that information showing they wont need this maintenance item after purchase.

A common question about timing belts is “when do I need to replace it”.  The answer is in your maintenance schedule, owner manual etc.  Car makers rate the mileage when the belt should be replaced, they allow for wear and time when setting this schedule, they know they eventually fail.  Average for most cars is every 50,000 miles but look at your maintenance schedule or contact us for details.

There are many shops who do Timing Belt ReplacementTiming-Belt-Parts in Raleigh, but honesty is important and that’s one of our specialities.

We understand, sometimes taking your car in for timing belt repair is a lot like a dentist office visit, well it doesn't have to be that way.

Check your timing belt maintenance schedule, save money by replacing it before it breaks.

Ideally, visual inspection is the most accurate way to determine its condition, but that requires partial disassembly.

Who repairs timing belt in Raleigh?  Good question, the problem: timing belts cant be inspected for wear without removing parts.   Timing belts are not a repair item either, replacement only sorry.

Because automotive timing belts are a replacement item only, inspecting them for cracks and frays is standard.

The work it takes to inspect, you may as well replace.  Check your maintenance schedule
