The timing belt is a critical part of the vehicle, which works by turning the camshaft at the right speed in relation to the crankshaft to ensure that the valves in the engine cylinders open at the right time. If the belt breaks when the engine is running, it can cause catastrophic and irreparable damage. For this reason, it's important to replace timing belts at recommended intervals — usually 60,000 mile or five years, depending on the make and model. You can find the recommended replacement intervals in your car owner's manual.
Replacing the timing belt can be a big job, and it's often quite tricky to get it right. If the timing belt is too loose, it will whip, but if it is too tight, it will place excessive strain on the subsequent parts. In order to ensure the correct tension, it is recommended that all timing belt parts be replaced at the same time. That's why we offer timing belt service kits that include all the parts you will need for this job, including the timing belt, the idler, and the tensioner pulleys, all of which are needed to increase or decrease the tension on the belt. All of the necessary fixings are also included.
