Engine Timing Belt Replacement Service

Toyota Engine Timing Belt Replacement Service in St. Joseph, MO

Your car is an important part of your life, and without it, you may be grounded. Knowing when and where to have crucial replacements and repairs done is essential for any car owner. The timing belt is a huge part of any car and knowing when to replace is a must.

What Is a Timing Belt Replacement Service?

Your timing belt is a crucial part of any engine. It works as part of an internal combustion engine that is meant to synchronize the rotation of the crankshaft as well as the camshafts in order to open the engine’s valves and close them at the correct times during the intake and exhaust strokes. A timing belt replacement service can be preventative or can be replaced after the belt has snapped. The preventative replacement may occur when the belt is beginning to wear out of when it is at the end of its life expectancy. For those that are replacing due to the belt breaking, there is often far more that needs to be repaired along with the replacement of the belt.

Why Should I Have a Timing Belt Replacement Service Done?

Timing belt replacement is necessary for a few different reasons. If your belt has broken, your car is not going to run. Without the timing belt, the car is not going to be able to turn over, it may stall, it may start then stop, you could hear a ticking noise when you drive, your engine may misfire and more. If the belt is bad but it has not snapped yet, you may be able to change it out before it breaks to avoid any further damage. In cases where the belt snaps, it may cause bent valves, cylinder and camshaft damage, and more. When a belt snaps it tends to whip around inside the engine and can cause a great deal of damage.

What Happens If I Don’t Have a Timing Belt Replacement Service?

Postponing a service can cause a huge issue in your car. The worst-case scenario is that you put off replacing a bad belt and it snaps while you are driving. This can cause you to wreck, can cause your car to stall, and can cause damage to the engine as well. If your belt is in need of a change but has not snapped yet, you may hear a ticking in the engine, you might see oil leaking from the motor and more.
