Timing Belt Replacement in Queen Creek & San Tan Valley, AZ
Your vehicle’s timing belt is a critical part of the engine that allows it to run smoothly. It controls the timing of the camshaft and crankshaft so that they are synchronized in order to ensure that the correct valves are opened and closed at the right moment to allow in the correct mixture of air and fuel while the pistons move up and down. When a timing belt breaks, this synchronization is disturbed, which can lead to severe engine damage.
Here at Stamps Auto, we are here to assist you when you find yourself needing a timing belt replacement. You can trust that our ASE certified technicians are experienced with all makes and models of vehicles and will ensure that your timing belt is replaced properly and in a timely manner.
If you’re unsure of when your vehicle needs a timing belt replacement, the best source for this interval is your vehicle’s owner’s manual or factory service recommendations. Ignoring an interval for a timing belt replacement can be costly, so we always recommend getting it taken care of when you need to. Also, an visual inspection here at our shop can determine if your belt has excessive wear or tear and whether it needs to be replaced in the near future.
Signs it’s time for a timing belt replacement include:
- Check engine light is on
- Excessive vibration while driving
- Engine misfires
- Decreased fuel efficiency
- Loss in engine power
- Ticking noise coming from the engine
Timing belts will wear down over time, and it’s in your best interest to have a worn out belt replaced before it breaks to prevent the engine damage that can occur when a belt breaks unexpectedly. Many times, a timing belt dries out and damage can’t necessarily be seen with the naked eye, which is why changing your vehicle’s timing belt according to manufacturer recommendations is so important. You’ll save yourself time, money, and protect your vehicle from irreversible engine damage.
