Timing Belt Package
Having your timing belt replaced when needed is important to prevent complete engine failure, which can lead to expensive repairs. Warning signs that your timing belt is failing include rough idling, difficulty starting your engine, and cracks on the belt. At Independence Car Service in Mountain View, CA, we have been the trusted Asian vehicle specialists in the area for over 20 years and counting. Our ASE Certified Technicians are experienced with all makes and models of Asian vehicles and can assist with timing belt inspections and replacements.
The timing belt in your engine has the important job of controlling the camshaft, which opens and closes engine valves correctly to make sure the engine runs smoothly. A worn or tearing timing belt can start to cause engine problems, and a snapped belt usually causes complete engine failure. This is why it is so important to have the timing belt inspected regularly to check for any tears or signs of depreciation. A belt that is heavily worn or tearing needs to be replaced quickly to ensure your safety on the road.
Timing belts will wear down over time with regular use of your vehicle. If your belt is beginning to wear down or tear, you may start to notice one or more of the following symptoms:
Grinding noises while driving
Lack of power
Vibrating while driving
Along with replacing your timing belt, we recommend that your vehicle's water pump is replaced regularly as well. It can do significant damage if it fails later and it is easy to change during a timing belt replacement. Your vehicle's owner's manual will help you determine the service interval for a timing belt service. Feel free to give us a call as well and we will be happy to assist you on the proper timing belt replacement interval for your vehicle.
