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.

Outstanding! Was sceptical and hesitant to use this service, I'm just accustomed to the inconvenience of taking my car to a brick and mortar shop. Never again if it can be avoided. Peter was the consummate experienced professional. Not only was the problem exactly as he expected, the repair was less than the quote- which was already significantly less expensive than my past experience with traditional shops. I am overjoyed at the convenience of this service and I will definitely use again. Highly recommended, and Peter was phenomenal.

Rodney was awesome. This was my first experience with "YourMechanic" and I was curious as to how this would work out. He had some issues and took a little longer then estimated. But he persevered and completed the job. This was a timing belt replacement (no easy job), and I didn't have to worry about dropping the car off and renting a car. He came directly to the house and did it all. Amazing service. Have already recommended to co-workers and will definitely use again.

Paul was very thorough, and did the job the right way, very honest about the condition of my car. I appreciate the honesty and the explanations he gave me for the parts I needed and why I did. Very clean operation, can't even tell he was here. Will definitely call on him again when I have an automobile repair that is over my head.
