Automotive Tips from Tire Warehouse Depot: Knowing When Your Timing Belt Should Be Replaced
Posted in Timing Belt on November 13, 2016
The timing belt in your engine controls the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves. Lake Orion drivers need to replace it on a schedule to avoid failure.
Timing belts are very difficult to get to, requiring quite a bit of labor to access. Timing belt replacement is one of the more expensive maintenance services, but the cost at Tire Warehouse Depot to correct an engine damaged by a broken timing belt is much, much more.
The timing belt has a tensioner to help maintain proper belt tension. The tensioner should be replaced along with the timing belt and any idler pulleys at the vehicle manufacturer’s specified service interval. Your Tire Warehouse Depot service advisor can help you with the timing belt.
