Timing Belt Replacement
Timing belt change for all types of cars, SUV’s and light commercial vehicles by qualified mechanics. When there’s trouble with the timing belt, the cogs crack and break off. This causes a slight difference in the belt movement, which changes the mechanical timing. Avoid major engine damage by getting your timing belt replaced before it snaps.
An average would be between 60,000 and 100,000 miles, or 4 years, but please refer to your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendations. If in doubt, contact us here at mechanic 24hr and we will advise you.
Our Advise on Timing Belt Change
- Go for a full kit (pulleys, timing belt tensioner & timing belt), not just the timing belt change.
- Kill two birds with one stone: replace the water pump and the timing kit at the same time
- When buying a second hand car, change the timing belt asap, unless you get proof of recent timing belt change.
