If you wait until your timing belt breaks to have it replaced, you risk the chance of a minor repair developing into a highly expensive repair. Timing belt replacement is significantly cheaper to have completed when other maintenance services (such as replacing the water pump) are performed at the same time. We highly recommend replacing the timing belt when your service advisor informs you that it is time.

Timing belt replacement is one of our specialties, and here is how one of our top technicians, Howard Vicars, describes his techniques for timing belt replacement:
“While removing the timing belt, we commonly replace the water pump to save the customer money from a similar bill in the near future. After the timing belt covers are removed, I inspect the hidden seals, pulleys and tensioners for signs of wear or damage. Then, while there, since we already have most of the work done by removing the timing belt, we commonly replace the water pump to save the customer money from a similar bill in the near future. After the necessary new parts are installed, I like to pressurize the cooling system or use our cooling flush machine for further protection to guard against cooling system leaks and problems. Lastly, I test drive the vehicle and look for any smudges or fluid drips from the repair to ensure a safe and repaired vehicle ready for the customer.”
