Is It Time to Inspect Your Timing Belt?

Inspecting the timing belt should be on the maintenance checklist of any high-mileage vehicle. As the timing belt ages, it can stretch and cause the motor to run poorly, or snap and leave you stranded.

What does the timing belt do for your vehicle's engine? The timing belt is essential to modern car engines. It turns two shafts that actuate both the pistons and valves in perfect synchronicity. This is accomplished by carefully aligning the two shafts when the belt is installed. The timing belt is designed to maintain the position of the two shafts without any slippage.

If your vehicle's timing belt is due for an inspection, we invite you to bring it to our service center in Fairfield. Our certified automotive technicians have the experience and training to determine if your timing belt needs to be replaced.
