Missing a crucial timing belt service or failing to conduct a timing belt replacement in time, can be one of the most costly oversights that your engine can incur.
Many of todays vehicles are so focused on fuel efficiency, that they cut corners when it come to the area of timing belts.
In most of today’s engines, a timing belt breakage will actually destroy multiple things inside of your engine.
Things like valves, pushrods, and even your heads can be damaged, bent, and destroyed when your timing belt service is ignored.
At A Street Automotive we recommend that you bring your car in for a timing belt replacement or service every 60,000 miles.
Many people today on a budget, try and skip timing belt replacement and timing belt service because their cars seem to run just fine even well after the manufactures recommended mile for timing belt replacement.
Timing belts usually break without notice, and instantly cause damage without warning.
The repairs alone caused by broken timing belts are many times over what it costs to just get your timing belt replaced at the appropriate time.
There are many other components in the same area as timing belts that are all engineered to be serviced around the same mileage as your timing belt service, and to save on costs and potential danger, should all be replaced at the same time.
In many engines, this will include the tensioner, belt, idler, water pump, and even your cam and crank seals.
Usually the cam and crank seals will last until your second timing belt replacement unless you are already experiencing oil leaks in that area.
