The importance & benefits of replacing your timing belt

Your timing belt helps run many fundamental parts of your car, including the vehicle’s engine, alternator, air conditioner and power steering pump.


In older vehicles, the standard timeframe to replace a timing belt is around 60,000 miles. As technology advances, many vehicle manufacturers recommend intervals around 100,000 miles! To confirm your vehicle’s recommended timing belt replacement interval, you can check your vehicle’s owner’s manual, or simply call Wiygul Automotive Clinic.


Replacing your timing belt will provide you and your vehicle with many benefits, including:

1.         Improved horsepower and acceleration

2.         Increased gas mileage

3.         Prevent unexpected and/or more costly auto repairs


Unfortunately, in most cases, there are no obvious signs that a timing belt is going to break. Avoiding a timing belt replacement could cause engine failure, broken or bent valves, cylinder or camshaft damage and possibly piston and cylinder wall damage. These types of repairs could accumulate to thousands of dollars in damage.
