Timing Belt Information

We do not perform timing belt replacement or service due to time and additional service tools.  This page is for information about timing belts.  Call us and we can recommend a repair facility that does timing belts for your vehicle.

When should a timing belt be replaced and what is an interference engine?
The chart below is taken from the Autodata Timing Belt Replacement and explains when the timing belt should be changed. It also tells if the engine is an interference engine which will cause MAJOR engine damage if the timing belt, idler pulleys or water pump fail.
