The Timing Belt or Chain is a vital component of any modern engine, it ensures that the moving engine components remain synchronised thus avoiding contact with each other. If the belt fails the damage to the engine would be costly to repair sometimes resulting in a replacement engine.
The recommended maximum life of the Timing belt varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, however if you are not sure give us a call and we can advise you accordingly. If your car’s Timing belt is due for renewal we would be happy to provide an estimate.
The engine constitutes hundreds of components moving in sync to make the car run. The timing belt or chain joins the crankshaft in the lower end of the engine to the crankshaft in the upper half. In cases where the timing belt or chain has stretched, the car may experience rattling from the engine or lack of responsiveness on acceleration. In cases of severe damage, the engine stalls while driving or doesn’t start.
