Timing Belt Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Timing Belt all about?

The timing belt is a rubber belt located in the engine compartment behind the drive belts. Its job is to keep the crankshaft in sync with the camshaft(s), ensuring the proper timing and operation of the engine valves and therein, the engine.

Timing Belt

Keep in mind:

  • When replacing a timing belt, also replace the water pump, tensioner, and pulleys.
  • If the pulleys and tensioners should fail after only replacing the belt, it can cause valve or piston damage and lead to more expensive repairs, in order to have the engine run properly. It is therefore essential to replace the whole set.
  • We only replace the water pump if it is driven by the timing belt (true for 60% of the cars).

How it's done:

  • Remove accessories needed to gain access to engine timing cover.
  • Remove engine timing cover, inspect timing belt and pulleys for needed parts.
  • Remove and replace timing belt, water pump, pulleys, and tensioners.
  • Reinstall timing cover and all removed parts.
  • Start engine and check for proper engine operation and engine timing, as well as for cooling system leaks.

Our recommendation:

Follow the maintenance schedule provided by the manufacturer and replace the timing belt as recommended. The timing belt drives the water pump in 60% of the cars. The labor cost of replacing the water pump is significantly higher than the cost of the pump. While replacing the timing belt, it is cost effective to replace the water pump. We highly recommend replacing the timing belt pulleys and tensioners. The tensioner applies pressure to the timing belt keeping it tight, while the pulleys keep the timing belt in line. These components are sealed units that contain bearings (they cannot be lubricated on a regular basis). The bearings wear out over time and may seize, causing the timing belt to come off, which can cause major internal engine damage.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Timing Belt?

  • Abnormal squeaking coming from the timing cover area.
  • If the timing belt breaks, the car will not start.

How important is this service?

Ignoring the replacement of a timing belt as a part of scheduled maintenance, could result in major engine failure down the road. You should not wait for your timing belt to break, it must be serviced regularly.

Because of the way my car died I was scared of how much it would cost to repair it and I was frightened to drive my car in case it happened again. I was thinking I might have to give up driving and take the bus. Jason came already prepared and familiar with the make and model of my car. He listened to my description of what happened and was genuinely concerned. If it was the alternator, replacing the battery wouldn't help. He tested the alternator first. I was relieved to learn the alternator was fine. Since the battery is located behind the tire, he showed me the wear on the brake pads and he said he would email me a quote for it but that I had time to budget for that repair. Jason educated me about the make and model of my car and what probably happened to the battery so that I have a greater appreciation now for my own car. Because Jason is an experienced, certified professional mechanic, I can drive my car now with confidence. Because Jason was honest and didn't use high pressure sales tactics, I can afford to keep driving and plan ahead to budget for future maintenance and repairs. I trust Jason and highly recommend him to anyone.
