Each component of your vehicle has a certain life expectancy, so it should not come as a surprise when for instance, your transmission or suspension breaks down. The life expectancy of each component is shown in your owner's manual with specific manufacturer benchmarks, roughly around every 30,000 miles. However, sometimes these components can last much longer that the suggested time frame. Nonetheless, it's a good idea to have them inspected by a qualified and experience technician at our auto repair shop, on a regular basis. If you want to avoid major problems in the future, you should have a computer diagnostic performed and vehicle components inspected on regular basis.

Timing Belt Replacement
At some point during your vehicle’s life, you will have to change the timing belt. Most vehicles require that the timing belt needs to be replaced at 100,000 miles. Sometimes, there are cars that have timing chains instead of a timing belt. These timing chains can still stretch or break and could be noisier. The owner’s manual of your car will tell you when you must change your timing belt. You must change it before it becomes a serious problem. A lot of vehicles have complicated internal systems that must work in perfect synchrony all together and when the timing belt breaks, the internal parts of the engine are destroyed, and the synchrony is gone. This happens so fast that you might not get a warning.
While You’re At It…When you are having your timing belt replaced, there is another component that runs on this belt, and that is your water pump. We advise you to replace your water pump at the same time when you are replacing your timing belt. As a matter of fact, they are most done together, because when we must replace your water pump, we have to do almost the exact same work as replacing your timing belt. This does not apply to all makes of vehicles but does apply to most of them.
At our auto repair shop, our certified technicians have been replacing timing chains, timing belts and water pumps for years. If your vehicle needs a new timing belt, water pump or timing chain, give us a call or schedule an appointment online.
