Your timing belt is a vital component of your engine. It allows the components of your engine to function in concert with one another, and when it gets old, it can start to break or even snap. This can lead to many problems with your engine, which will likely render your car useless without significant repairs. Thankfully, we’re here to provide timing belt replacement for you at Bill Jacobs Volkswagen so that you don’t have to go through that at all.
The timing belt is a belt that runs between the camshaft and the crankshaft in your engine. The camshaft controls your engine’s valves, letting in and out the components and products of combustion. The crankshaft rotates with the movement of the pistons during and after combustion. These two shafts need to be in concert so that combustion can happen correctly and so the timing belt holds them together. Without the timing belt, your valves may not open when they need to, causing problems with combustion and deteriorating your car’s ability to drive.
Every part of your car takes some sort of wear, and eventually, most of the parts that wear down need replacing. The timing belt is no different, and as it wears, teeth can fall off the belt, or cracks can develop. The belt might slip, causing your engine to have timing issues, likely turning on the check engine light. The important thing is to have your timing belt checked regularly so that you know when it’s time to replace it.
Most experts agree that the timing belt should be replaced about every 70,000 to 100,000 miles. Replacing the timing belt depends on the condition of the belt itself, so it’s always a good idea to have our technicians take a look at your belts to make sure they’re in good condition. Our certified technicians know your car inside and out and can tell you exactly when the belt needs to be replaced to avoid extensive repairs.
