If you're serious about maintaining your car, you already know how important it is to take care of them and replace them as necessary. Island Auto Group has a dedicated service center that can help you with any repair task, including timing belt issues. 


Here's why timing belts matter. 


Timing Belt Maintenance 


What is the purpose of a timing belt? It's a belt that your car's engine cannot run without. It coordinates everything by synchronizing the rotation of the crankshaft and camshaft. As its name implies, it basically times and balances everything that happens under the hood. 


How do you know if you need a timing belt replacement? Keep an eye out for these telltale signs of trouble: 


- You start to have problems revving up your car. 

- You hear a distinct clicking noise coming from the engine. 

- Check for any kind of oil leak around the motor. 

- Exhaust problems are also sometimes attributable to bad timing belts. 


The typical time frame for changing a timing belt is between roughly 60,000 and 100,000 miles. You definitely don't want to play games with a faulty timing belt, either. If it rattles around long enough, it can damage several other engine components.


Avoid the need for expensive automotive replacements by keeping this critical piece of hardware running optimally.
