TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT
TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT IN RIVERSIDE
Many of today’s engines use timing belts. A timing belt system is a precision component with wheels and belts in order to properly time the engine to run at maximum efficiency and performance. The timing buckle maintains crankshaft-to-camshaft synchronization, keeping valve procedure coordinated to piston placement. On some motors, the belt also drives additional components, including the oil pump, water pump, and balance shafts.
WHEN TO CHANGE YOUR TIMING BELT
Look at your car’s owner’s manual for information on timing belt upkeep. Our ASE Certified technicians recommend suggest timing belt must be replaced at the manufacturer’s recommended distance and/or time periods. Failure to replace timing belt can result in complete breakdown or catastrophic engine failure. If the timing belt is not changed at the advised period, the belts could break, which may leave you stuck and possibly cause major engine damage. If you’re getting the timing belt replaced, consider changing other areas which may be accessed simultaneously. Water pump, timing belt sprockets, and tensioning pulleys are great good examples. Come in to Prado’s Quality Auto Repair and have one of our technicians do an inspection if you think your car needs a timing belt service.
