Most Import and some Domestic vehicles have Timing Belts that keeps the engines’ internal mechanical components in sink. Interference engines will sustain damage if synchronization is lost and rarely even some non interference engines can suffer damage. This results in very expensive engine repairs.
The average Timing Belt is required to be changed every 148,000km (1 year is worth 20,000km). Replacing the Timing Belt should be done by either Time or Mileage, which ever comes first. While there is always a little leeway and some debate as to when a timing belt should be replaced we highly recommend following the manufactures maintenance schedule for when to carry out this service. If you do not know if your vehicle has a timing belt or when your vehicle’s timing belt should be replaced please call us and we will let you know.
