Timing Belt Replacement
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.
