Replacing a Timing Belt Service Cost

Replacing a Timing Belt Service Cost

All gas-powered vehicles are either equipped with a timing belt or a timing chain. Most vehicle manufacturers require that you change the timing belt every 100,000 miles. If not, serious damage to your engine can occur. Timing chains also require regular maintenance to increase the longevity of your engine.

Tips to increase the life of timing components

Timing belts are made of rubber which stretches when it gets warm and contracts when it is cool. Over time, this expansion and contraction causes the belt to wear out and develops cracks. To increase the life of the belt here are some tips:

  • Repair any oil leaks on your car’s engine- this is a preventable measure that can save you thousands of dollars
  • Repair any water/coolant leaks-if you run out of coolant, your engine will overheat, resulting in a blown head gasket
  • Drive your car frequently
  • Never delay or skip any oil change intervals- oil gets thicker with dirt and grime from your engine. Changing it regularly can help
  • Perform any scheduled maintenance according your vehicle’s service schedule

NEVER EXCEED THE MILEAGE THAT IS REQUIRED FOR A TIMING BELT CHANGE, AS THIS CAN CAUSE SERIOUS DAMAGE TO YOUR ENGINE.

    It makes sense that the price could change depending on the make and model of the car you have. My cousin is trying to keep his older car running smoothly for a long time. He really needs to find a local car repairs service that can do these repairs for a reasonable price.

    My sister has an older foreign car that is starting to make weird sounds and jolt. I think that one of the problems is that her timing belt is starting to wear out. It’s good to know that the cost of this repair will really depend on how complicated the replacement will be.

    It makes sense to top off the coolant if you are getting low so that you don’t blow the gasket. My brother is trying to keep his older car running well this year. He needs to find a local mechanic that is trustworthy and able to do all the repairs.
