Do I Have To Change The Timing Belts

Timing Belt Service | High River, AB

Do I Have to Change the Timing Belt?

The timing belt is an essential part of your car's engine. It plays an essential role in keeping your car's engine running smoothly, and if it starts to break down, it can cause some severe problems.

What Is the Timing Belt and How Does it Work?

If your car engine were a heart, the timing belt would be the pulse. This important piece of machinery keeps your engine valves and pistons in sync as they fire. A healthy timing belt ensures that your vehicle's engine runs smoothly. But when this part breaks or snaps, it can cause catastrophic damage to your engine.

When and Why Should I Replace My Timing Belt?

Over time, the teeth on the timing belt can wear down, eventually leading to breakage. If this happens while driving, it can cause severe damage to your engine. That's why it's important to replace your timing belt as recommended - typically between every 100,000 and 150,000 km.

Indicators That it Might Be Time to Replace Your Belt

In most cases, there may be no apparent signs that a timing belt is becoming worn. Quite often, it simply breaks when you least expect it. If you're unsure whether or not it's time to replace your timing belt, here are a few factors that indicate a possible worn belt:

  • oil leakage
  • black smoke
  • reduced engine power
  • trouble starting the engine
  • illuminated check engine light

If you're noticing any of these issues with your car, it's time to take it in for a checkup. Visit our Service Centre in High River for a professional timing belt replacement.
