Automotive Tips from Pit Stop Auto & Tire: Knowing When Your Timing Belt Should Be Replaced
Posted in Timing Belt on May 13, 2018
The timing belt in your engine controls the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves. Mount Pleasant 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 Pit Stop Auto & Tire 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 Pit Stop Auto & Tire service advisor can help you with the timing belt.
