Free Timing Belt Check
A timing belt check will involve a thorough inspection of the timing belt and its related components. These checks are particularly important to carry out on belts that are over 4 or 5 years old - because the timing belt is made of rubber, it will wear down over time and eventually break.
Driving a vehicle with a worn-out timing belt can cause severe engine failures. Moreover, the damage can also spread to other components of the engine’s bay. As a consequence, it will leave you with a non-functional car. Also, if such incidents happen on the road, you may lose control of the vehicle and be involved in an accident.
Based on the age and mileage of your vehicle, our experts can quickly assess whether you need a replacement. If there are no issues, you can be on your way without delay.
If a repair or replacement is needed, a no-obligation quote will be provided.
It is recommended to replace the timing belt after every 100,000 miles covered or if you notice any unusual noises from the engine.
Benefits of Timing Belt Replacement
Increased horsepower and acceleration
A newly replaced timing belt improves the coordination between the crankshaft and camshaft. This improved coordination enhances the rotatory motion of the wheels and provides increased acceleration and horsepower.
Driving a car with worn-out timing belt causes further damage to crankshaft, camshaft, and sometimes pistons in the engine. Replacing the timing belt eliminates the additional expenses on repairing these components.
Improved fuel mileage
A new cambelt puts lesser stress on the engine; hence, leads to lower fuel consumption. As a result, the overall fuel economy of the vehicle gets increased.
