Timing Belt Service Breakdown

What It Is

The timing belt is responsible for keeping the engine running in perfect time. Without it, a dangerous failure from pistons colliding with valves in the engine would quickly lock-up your vehicle. Specifically, the timing belt (also known as the timing chain) works similar to a bike chain on gears to synchronize the rotation of the engine’s crankshaft and camshaft. With such an important role in the proper function of your vehicle, the timing belt should always be in good condition.

Why Replacement is Recommended by Your Manufacturer

When teeth on the chain wear out or the tension is not quite right, the belt may slip, whip, or create excessive strain. That could be disastrous for your vehicle’s engine and function! To avoid these problems and interference (the impact of the pistons and valves), all vehicle manufacturers recommend preventative timing belt replacement. When exactly you need to replace the belt depends on your specific vehicle. To find out when you need service, check your owner’s manual. Then, contact the experts at Mark’s Japanese European Auto in Bellevue, Washington! We perform timing belt replacement and a full inspection of the crankshaft, camshaft, and water pump to ensure all the interconnected parts are in good condition.
