When To Replace Timing Belt or Chain?

At some point during your car's life, you will have to change the timing belt. The majority of vehicles require that their timing belt need to be replaced at 100,000 miles or somewhere around that number. On the other hand, there are cars that have timing chains instead of a timing belt. These timing chains can still stretch or break and they can be noisier. The owner's manual of your car will tell you when you have to change your timing belt. You have to 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 won't even get a warning. Some experts in the auto repair industry have named it a "grenade." The engine breaks apart on the inside, resulting in buying a new engine or a new car. The timing belts is way cheaper than a new engine or new car.

While You're At It…

When you are having your timing belt replaced, there's another component that runs on this belt, and that is your water pump. It's much easier to replace your water pump when your car is pulled apart. We advise you to replace your water pump at the same time, when you are replacing your timing belt. If you've planned yo do both replacements, this could save you some serious cash. As a matter of fact, they are most commonly done together mainly because when we have to replace your water pump, we have to do almost the exact same work as replacing your timing belt. This is not true for all vehicle makes and models on the market, but for the majority of them.

At our auto repair shop, our certified technicians have replaced more timing chains, timing belts and water pumps that we can even remember. If your vehicle needs a new timing belt, water pump or timing chain, give us a call or schedule an appointment online.

I was traveling from Illinois to rincon GA. I pulled over to get gas. My car wouldn’t steer and leaked coolant. It was in the middle of the night I had no idea what town I was in until an hour later when some guy checked to see if I was ok. Later that next morning I called 5 different places and this shop was the only one who answered! I cried and explained to Pam what happened and that I had no idea where I was. She was so nice on the phone and she asked if I was safe. I informed her I had my dog with me. She sent the tow truck right away! He was real nice and sweet and didn’t mind my dog going. He took me and my dog to this shop. Pam was at the desk and told me about their price to look at it and what not. She let my dog come in the waiting room with me. She made sure me and my dog had something to drink. The man who worked on my car came and told me what had happened and what was wrong with it. He Ordered the parts and he put me as a priority. A few hours later he told me my car was done so I could drive the 4 hours back home. This place is WONDERFUL!!!! I hope I never break down again but if I do I hope it’s in Cartersville so I can come back to this place! They were so sweet and caring. I wasn’t just another dollar sign to them. Thank you guys for helping me!!!!!
