The Basics Behind Timing Belt Replacement Services

The timing belt on a vehicle keeps the camshaft and crankshaft turning at the correct rate. A vehicle should not be driven with apparent timing belt problems. If a timing belt breaks, it puts the vehicle at risk of complete engine power loss. It is recommended to replace the timing belt at the recommended mileage to help eliminate the risk of sudden breakdowns. An entire timing belt system also includes a belt tensioner and idler pulleys. All of these parts should be replaced when replacing the timing belt.

Why Should You Have Timing Belt Replacement Services Performed

Each engine design can vary, and therefore the timing belt replacement can vary. However the procedure consists of:

  • Disconnect the ground cable on the battery
  • Let the engine cool, move the crankshaft pulley
  • Remove the accessories that are interfering with removing the timing belt cover
  • Remove cover, lock camshafts, remove tensioner, and remove idler pulleys

Upon completion, the crankshaft is generally turned by hand, and the timing marks on the camshafts and crankshaft are confirmed for the correct position. The vehicle usually is road tested so the technician can confirm regular operation of the vehicle.
