Timing Belt Replacement Blaine, MN
The timing belt has a very important role in the way a vehicle functions. The belt controls and allows the entire engine operation to run efficiently by precisely regulating movement under the hood. Timing belt failure can easily cause the destruction of an entire vehicle, which is why it is crucial to make sure a certified mechanic, like one you would find at Clark Automotive, makes sure the timing belt is replaced properly and calibrated correctly.
When to check the timing belt?
Timing belts are designed to last up to 100,000 miles but in a lot of cases need to be changed every 60,000 to 75,000 miles. It is important to have your timing belt visually checked every 10,000 miles, in case it needs to be replaced.
Signs a timing belt needs to be replaced
