What is a Timing Belt?

A timing belt is a rubber belt that works in conjunction with the rotation of the camshaft and crankshaft of your vehicle.

Consequently, the car engine’s valves close and open at the right times. The moment at which the valves open and closes influences engine performance, emissions, and fuel economy – so accurate timing is essential.

All timing have their own replacement intervals. Exceeding these intervals will have the potential to snapping and destroying your engine – resulting in MUCH, MUCH costlier repairs and nobody likes that, not us and not our wonderful clients.

Below is a time frame we recommend:

  • The general rule is that the belt should typically be changed around 60,000. or every 4-5 years depending on mileage.

Changing the timing belt on this car, ensured that a costly repair bill down the line has been avoided. 

It’s important to note that the above timing belt replacement intervals quoted by the manufacturer should be regarded as the maximum. Due to variations in vehicle usage and operating conditions the belt may need to  be replaced earlier than specified.
