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.

Allen arrived on time, was very personable, explained the process and the company warranty. Then he proceeded to Change my water pump and timing belt in a very timely and professional manner. I had two estimates, one from a Nissan dealer and the other from a local shop and both were approx $600 more than 'Your Mechanic" I was skeptical at first but Allen's work and friendly manner as well as explaining and answering my questions put my mind at ease. What else can i say except that I spent 14 yrs in the selling and managing in car dealerships and know a little more about cars than the average person--and I'm thrilled.--Jim Brady

Peter was fantastic. He was on time (early actually), left my garage clean and fixed my truck (timing belt/water pump replacement). He took time to explain what was happening with my truck and answered any questions I had. Great job! I would recommend Peter, and already have, to my family and friends. I rated recommending YourMechanic.com at an 8 because when you call their toll free number for customer service, you will probably be on hold for 20-30 minutes. Once you finally get through, the agents are friendly and courteous. But something needs to be done about the wait time.
