Timing Belt Replacement Timing Belts Can Fail Without Warning
Timing belts control the engine’s valves. They transmit the engine's rotation to the overhead cam, which then opens and closes the valves. As opposed to timing chains, which are made of steel, timing belts are constructed of a rubber polymer material. Timing belts are quieter than timing chains, but do not last as long and require regular replacement.
Your vehicles manual will tell you at what mileage you should have the timing belt replaced - or bring your vehicle to The Dyno Shop, and we'll inspect the condition of your timing belt, look up your vehicle in our database, and change the belt as per the vehicle manufacturer's schedule. There are no warning signs for a timing belt failure, so it is important to check your timing belt at regular intervals, then have it replaced if it shows any wear or degradation, or is due to be replaced according to the auto-makers specifications.
