Timing Belt

Timing Belt Service at Back On Track Auto

At Back On Track Auto, we understand the importance of a properly functioning timing belt in your vehicle's engine. The timing belt plays a crucial role in synchronizing the rotation of the engine's crankshaft and camshaft, ensuring that the engine's valves open and close at the correct times. If the timing belt fails, it can lead to serious engine damage.

Our timing belt service includes:
Thorough inspection of the timing belt, tensioner, and related components
Replacement of the timing belt and components if necessary
Adjustment of the timing belt tensioner to ensure proper tension
Testing and tuning to verify that the timing is accurate and the engine runs smoothly
We use high-quality replacement parts to ensure that your timing belt performs reliably.

Our technicians are trained to work on a variety of vehicles, so you can trust that your timing belt service will be done right the first time.

Common timing belt problems can include:

Wear and Tear: Timing belts are made of rubber and can degrade over time due to heat, friction, and age. This can lead to cracking, fraying, or snapping of the belt.
Incorrect Tension: Proper tension is crucial for the timing belt to function correctly. If the tension is too loose or too tight, it can cause the belt to wear unevenly or fail prematurely.
Misalignment: If the timing belt is not properly aligned with the pulleys, it can cause excessive wear and lead to failure. Misalignment can occur due to worn or damaged pulleys or tensioners.
Oil Contamination: Oil leaks can contaminate the timing belt, causing it to deteriorate prematurely. Oil can also cause the belt to slip on the pulleys, leading to timing issues.
Water Pump Failure: Many vehicles have the water pump driven by the timing belt. If the water pump fails, it can cause the timing belt to break or skip teeth.
Overheating: Excessive heat can accelerate the deterioration of the timing belt. This can occur if the engine overheats or if the cooling system is not functioning properly.
Age and Mileage: Timing belts are typically replaced based on age and mileage recommendations. Failure to replace the timing belt at the recommended intervals can lead to unexpected failure.
Whether your vehicle is due for a timing belt replacement or you are experiencing symptoms of a failing timing belt, such as engine misfires or unusual noises, trust Back On Track Auto for all your timing belt service needs.
