Timing Belt Services
Your timing belt helps run many fundamental parts of your car, including the vehicle’s engine, alternator, air conditioner and power steering pump.
Timing belt is an important part of every vehicle hidden behind dust covers and other components of the engine. This makes it hard to see its condition which is why many people think it’s not worth to bother with somethings that cannot be seen. And of course, many say “if it’s not broken no need to fix it”. But this is wrong and is one of many reasons why you see so many vehicles pulled on the side of the road. According to cars manufacturers and experienced mechanics, timing belt should be regularly inspected and replaced.
In older vehicles, the standard timeframe to replace a timing belt is around 60,000 miles. As technology advances, many vehicle manufacturers recommend intervals around 100,000 miles! To confirm your vehicle’s recommended timing belt replacement interval, you can check your vehicle’s owner’s manual, or simply call Platte Woods Precision Auto Care.
Replacing your timing belt will provide you and your vehicle with many benefits, including:
- Improved horsepower and acceleration
- Increased gas mileage
- Prevent unexpected and/or more costly auto repairs
