Timing Belt Replacement
A timing belt replacement is an absolutely essential part of your vehicles maintenance and repair over your cars lifetime. Because without it your car simply won’t be able to go anywhere. A faulty timing belt could also lead to potential engine damage. Most modern vehicles are equipped with timing chains or timing belts that need replacing every 60,000 – 100,000 miles. One of the most common signs that your timing belt needs replacing is a rattling noise that comes from the front of the engine. Plastic chunks in the oil are another indication that a timing belt replacement may be needed. It is important that the first signs of a faulty timing belt are taken seriously and a replacement is done quickly due to the fact that a faulty timing belt can cause a great deal of damage to your engine, sometimes even destroying it completely.
Sometimes engine damage is inevitable. Loud knocking or grinding noises coming from under the hood are one of the most common signs that your engine may be damaged. Engine damage can be caused from a wide array of things. A crack or leak in the combustion chamber can lead to a lack of compression. Our mechanics will run a compression test to diagnose lack of compression before rebuilding the engine.
