West Service Center, Inc. Auto Service and Maintenance Videos: Knowing When Your Timing Belt Should Be Replaced

The timing belt in your engine controls the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves. Chesapeake car owners need to replace it on a schedule to avoid failure.

Timing belts are very problematic to get to, requiring quite a bit of labor to access. Timing belt replacement is one of the more pricey maintenance services, but the cost 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 auto manufacturer’s specified service interval. Your honest West Service Center, Inc. service specialist can help you with the timing.
