Timing Belt Replacement

Schedule Service

The timing belt is responsible for synchronizing your engine’s functions. If it fails, your engine will stop and serious engine damage can result.

Typically there are are no warning signs that your timing belt is in trouble — it just breaks! Therefore, it’s recommended that you replace it after 60,000 to 106,000 miles. Checking your owner’s manual will tell you the recommended interval for your vehicle.

VIP’s Certified Automotive Professionals can can give you a more accurate idea of the condition of your timing belt by  visually assessing it and will let you know if replacement is recommended.

When To Replace Your Timing Belt

Replace your timing belt based on your owner’s manual recommendation or if it has cracks, cuts, is soaked in oil leaking from the engine or water from a leaking water pump, or shows signs of excessive wear.

How Does a Timing Belt Work?

The timing belt is a rubber belt that controls the camshafts in your engine, opening and closing valves at just the right time for smooth operation. The timing belt has teeth that turn the camshaft in time with the crankshaft.
