Signs That You Need a New Timing Belt
The timing belt is a toothed belt and plays an important role by synchronising the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft, keeping engine valves open or closed during the intake and exhaust strokes of each cylinder. In some makes and models, the timing belt also drives the water pump.
As with all components, timing belts wear out over time and need to be replaced when damaged or at the manufacturer’s specified recommendations. If it isn’t replaced when required, it can stretch, slip or break and cause major damage to your engine that would be much more expensive to repair than replacing the timing belt. If you notice any of the following signs, it may be time to replace your car’s timing belt:
- Engine misfires
- Rough engine idling
- Reduced oil pressure
Our technicians will check your timing belt in line with the manufacturer’s recommended specifications during a log book or scheduled service, though you should bring your car in for a timing belt service if you notice any of the signs above. We also upgrades to dual timing chains on some vehicles where available. Unlike some other auto service providers, we always replace the water pump and thermostat at the same time as the timing belt service, ensuring it operates correctly and you get the best value-for-money service.
How Are Timing Belts Replaced?
The process of replacing a timing belt is relatively straightforward and involves:
- Removing components to access timing belt covers
