Why Perform a Timing Belt Replacement Every 75,000 Miles?

A timing belt (or cam belt) is a part of the engine that synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft(s) so that the engine’s valves open and close at the proper times during each cylinder’s intake and exhaust strokes. A timing belt is usually a toothed belt – a drive belt with teeth on the inside surface.

Timing belts must be replaced at the manufacturer’s recommended distance and/or time periods. Failure to replace the belt can result in complete breakdown or catastrophic engine failure. The owner’s manual maintenance schedule is the source of timing belt replacement intervals, typically every 30,000 to 50,000 miles. It is common to replace the timing belt tensioner at the same time as the belt is replaced.

Still not sure if your vehicle’s timing belt needs servicing? Read our FAQ’s:

There is a rattling noise coming from the engine – my son believes its the timing belt. Thoughts?

When a rattling noise occurs in front of the engine, the belt may be loose or the timing chain may be coming apart. The hood should be opened and the engine inspected before continuing to use the vehicle. One of the most common signs of a bad belt is when the engine jumps timing. Also referred to as retarded ignition, the engine’s start-up sequence will be off. This occurs when the timing belt skips a tooth on the camshaft due to being too loose or stretched.

What main indicators can I look for if I suspect my timing belt is wearing out?

The main indicators of a bad timing belt include a high-pitched noise coming from the engine, difficulties when starting the car, poor performance on the road and an excessive amount of exhaust. A vehicle owner must never ignore the symptoms of a bad timing belt. A timing belt that breaks often causes serious engine damage.

Is it difficult to replace a timing belt myself? What’s the cost with an Otobots mechanic?

We never suggest your own auto repairs unless your certified. Timing belts are difficult without the right tools and time consuming without the right training. It’s always best to contact an Otobots mechanic for repairs like this.
