Timing Belt

TIMING BELT

While it’s never a good idea, there are certain maintenance items that won’t wreak havoc if you miss the manufacturer recommended maintenance interval specified in your owner’s manual. However, timing belts are not one of those items. At Gordon's Auto Service in New Brighton, we understand first-hand the importance of replacing your timing belt before it’s too late.

The timing belt essentially connects the bottom half of your engine to the top half, driving the camshafts which open the valves at precisely the right moment. In the majority of cars, the timing belt drives the water pump, which replacing can become very pricey. Issues with the timing belt can also cause major internal engine problems and even engine failure, which just adds more and more to the necessary services. Any amount of slack causes a decrease in performance, and in most cases, a broken timing belt will cost you an engine, or at least an expensive repair.

Don't wait until the timing belt breaks! Like other belts on your vehicle, timing belts wear out due to mechanical wear and age. Dry rot and constant movement are both factors in timing belt failure. The difference is, a timing belt can’t be readily seen just by popping the hood, and it isn’t as simple as installing a new one if yours snaps or falls off. For this reason, it is essential to have yours replaced at the recommended age or mileage, or sooner, typically in less than 100,000 miles. If the belt breaks, then the car will not start and you may hear a squeaking noise. Knowing this will equip you with the knowledge to get the right service for your vehicle. This preemptive measure is one you won’t regret, as it’ll save you a lot of money and anxiety in the long run.
