View Maintenance Schedule

  • Timing belts should be replaced according to the manufacturer’s required maintenance schedule.
  • Timing belt replacement involves a considerable amount of engine disassembly.

Why replace them?

  • Timing belts are quiet, efficient and unseen, so they tend to be forgotten.
  • Over time, they stretch, crack, become brittle and will eventually break.
  • Carbon deposits from combustion contaminate the tips over time, reducing efficiency.
  • Breakage will stop your engine dead and could cause major internal damage.
