The Timing Belt is a toothed rubber belt that keeps the Crankshaft, Aux shaft, and Camshaft(s) in time with one another. The Timing Belt is critical if your engine is going to run, as an engine out of synchronization will lack compression, and the ignition will not fire on time, which usually results in serious engine damage being caused.
Timing Belts and Timing Belt kits are fitted to Manufacturers’ Specifications.
The replacement intervals for vehicles with a Timing Belt range from 3 years / 36,000 miles to 10 years / 100,000 miles.
As Timing Belts can fail without warning we strongly recommend you change the Belt at the recommended intervals. Some vehicles have timing chains which usually last the lifetime of the vehicle without replacement. Please contact us with your vehicle details for clarification on whether your vehicle is a Belt or Chain driven Engine, Replacement intervals and costs to replace the Timing Belt or Timing Belt kit on your vehicle.
