When to Replace Your Vehicle’s Timing Belt
Your timing belt is integral to the safety and reliability of your vehicle. The timing belt keeps multiple components of your vehicle, such as the camshaft and crankshaft, turning at the correct rate. These components keep your engine from losing power. So if you’ve clocked enough distance to warrant a timing belt replacement, it’s in your best interest to have your vehicle serviced as soon as possible. At Michael’s British, American & Foreign Auto Repair, we offer dependable timing belt replacement services for a wide variety of makes and models.
Generally, the rule of thumb for replacing your timing belt is every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. To be safe, it’s better to check what the vehicle’s manufacturer recommends. If you’ve noticed a loss of power, loss of fuel economy, misfiring, and engine vibration, it might be time to have your timing belt replaced. Bring your vehicle into Michael’s British, American & Foreign Auto Repair and we’ll get to the bottom of the problem.
If you’ve just bought a new car and don’t have a record for when the timing belt was changed last, it’s advisable to bring it in for an inspection.
