Timing Belt Replacement Abington, PA
A vehicle’s timing belt is critical to help the engine open and close the values and keep the camshaft and crankshaft turning at the correct rate. If the timing is not perfect or damage disrupts proper flow, the engine’s power will be lost. Timing belt replacement and maintenance is required for all cars that have a timing belt to prevent serious & costly engine damage. There are variations for the timeframe of when a belt should be replaced depending on the manufacturer, but usually around 60,000 – 100,000 miles. Performance Auto Sales & Service in Abington, PA offers reliable and efficient timing belt replacement and maintenance services.
Signs You Need to Replace Timing Belt
The timing of your engine and how all of the parts work together is vital for an efficiently-running car. There are a few signs to clue you in that it is time for a timing belt replacement including non-replacement for 60,000 miles, ticking sound from the engine, engine won’t turn over, leaking oil and engine misfires. These signs should not be taken lightly, as prolonged driving on a bad belt can lead to costly repairs later on. Even worse, if a timing belt snaps while you’re driving the engine will shut off and come to a halt, putting you and other drivers in extreme danger.
