When To Replace Timing Belt or Chain?
At some point during your car's life, you will have to replace the timing belt. The majority of vehicles require that the timing belt is replaced around 100,000 miles. On the other hand, there are cars that have timing chains instead of a timing belt. These timing chains can still stretch or break and they can be noisier. The owner's manual of your car will tell you when you have to change your timing belt. It is best to change it before breaks or fails completely, which can cause more issues for your vehicle. A lot of vehicles have complicated internal systems that must work in perfect synchrony all together and when the timing belt breaks, the internal parts of the engine are destroyed and the synchrony is gone. This can happen quickly and without warning. Some experts in the auto repair industry have named it a grenade, because it can cause irreversible engine damage which can result in extensive engine repairs. Replacing your timing belt on time and before it breaks will save you time, stress, and money.
While You're At It
When you are having your timing belt replaced, there's another component that runs on this belt called the water pump. It's much easier to replace your water pump when your car is pulled apart, which is why CORE Automotive advises you to replace your water pump at the same time when you are replacing your timing belt. If you've planned yo do both replacements, this could save you some serious cash. As a matter of fact, they are most commonly done together mainly because when we have to replace your water pump, CORE Automotive has to do almost the exact same work as replacing your timing belt. This is not true for all vehicle makes and models on the market, but for the majority of them.
