How important is a timing belt?

Why you need an timing belt repair service

The timing belt is a car part that you probably never think about it. Call it a timing belt or a cambelt, either way, it’s the unsung hero of your vehicle’s engine, keeping the crankshaft, the camshaft, and all the valves and pistons all in sync. In many cars and trucks, the timing belt also drives the water pump that circulates coolant keeping your vehicle from overheating.

 

Timing belts are made from rubber and Kevlar. They’re designed to be tough, but they don’t last forever. Age, heat, and friction from the engine can all cause a timing belt to wear out.

 

A timing belt or a cambelt repair can be a relatively quick affair or a major headache.  When a timing belt is worn out, and those parts fall out of sync, that’s a sign that it’s time to bring your car or truck to a service center.  One way to avoid these headaches is preventive maintenance. Vehicle manufacturers recommend timing belt repair and replacement every 60,000 to 100,000 miles.

I was travelling and had a problem with the generator on my RV. Matt and the service techs at TLC got me in the day after I called and got it repaired in two hours, at a very fair cost. I stumbled into TLC after RV service outfits told me it would be a week to ten weeks before they could even look at my problem. I can't say enough about how well they took care of me.

Common signs your timing belt needs replacement

If you notice one or more of these symptoms, your car or truck may need a timing belt repair:

What happens to my car if the timing belt breaks?

A worn-out timing belt is a great concern. Issues that it can cause include:

If your timing belt begins to slip off the tensioner gears, you can experience misfires or hesitation when accelerating. In severe cases, your car or truck might stall.

If the timing of the engine is off, fuel might not ignite at the correct moment, leading to loud banging sounds coming from the engine. This knocking can damage your engine.

If the crankshaft falls out of sync with the pistons, it can push engine valves into the pistons, leading to valve and piston damage. If your valves or pistons are damaged, then the only solution is a complete engine rebuild.

The benefits of timing belt repair and replacement

Peace of mind

When you get your timing belt or cam belt repaired, your vehicle engine will be fine for another 60,000-100,000 without having to worry about timing belt failure that could leave you stranded. By preventing timing belt failures, you also reduce the risk of severe engine damage.

Better engine performance

If your vehicle’s engine is out of sync and misfiring, it uses more fuel and doesn’t run as well. By keeping up with the timing belt repair interval, your vehicle will not only drive better but will also be quieter.

Save Money

An engine that is misfiring due to timing issues burns a lot more fuel than a properly functioning engine. By having your timing belt replaced, your engine will run in sync again and use less fuel. Less fuel burned means more money in your pocket.

The timing belt repair process

Replacing a timing belt can be a lengthy process but is still a lot shorter than major engine repairs that you might need when a timing belt fails. First, the mechanic needs to access the timing belt by removing the timing cover. Accessing the timing cover usually requires the removal of several other engine components first. Once the mechanic has removed everything else, they can remove the timing belt and its associated parts, including the water pump, pulleys, and tensioners

 

While they have these parts out, they use special tools to prevent the crankshaft and camshaft from moving out of alignment. After installing the new timing belt, they’ll replace the parts they removed. After a final test drive, your vehicle is ready for thousands of miles of trouble-free driving.
