Awesome. Good work, good time, showed up early and is honest and smart
Father called anxiously that his car broke down unexpectedly. Not knowing what's problem, I made an inspection appointment with Your Mechanic. To our delight, Honorio was the assigned technician who actually did a PM service for the car in 2015, and we liked him very much. Honorio quickly diagnosed the problems to be the timing belt (which was never replaced), camshaft position sensor and crankshaft position sensor. We were just thrilled to hear that he could handle the repair right on our driveway. Honorio scheduled the 2nd appointment and returned with parts needed in less than a week. He worked with full concentration and finished the 6.5-hour job very nicely. Honorio is very professional and does an excellent reliable job for my dad. If we can trust him with our dad's car, we will trust him with any other family cars as we go. Thank you for the great work.

Five stars for another timing belt job - this time on my Tacoma. Theodore pointed out some other areas that might need attention, which was much appreciated. He is knowledgeable and honest - I will definitively use him again in the future.
Theodore was meticulous and thorough...he was professional, on time and pleasant. He had several recommendations that I plan to follow up on soon. He provided me total confidence with his work and his manner. I think I have found my regular mechanic. Thank you.

Peter did an excellent job with our Nissan. He was informative and helpful. Peter was meticulous at his work and cleaned the area as he worked, as well as when he completed the job. He also diagnosed another issue with the vehicle and sent me a quote. We are very pleased with his service and will highly recommend him to friends looking for a great mechanic.
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.

Whitney is the man! Having had some REALLY bad mechanics in the past, I try to do as much work on my truck myself as possible, but I knew I was going to need help with the timing belt. I just wasn't comfortable setting the timing myself without any supervision. Originally, I wanted to find someone to supervise my work so that I wouldn't do it wrong, obviously I couldn't find anyone to do that since I hired Whitney to do it. He was awesome though, knowing how much I wanted to do it myself, He talked me through everything he did and let me watch and ask as many questions as I wanted... which was a lot! He even let me pick his brain about other parts of my truck that had nothing to do with what he was working on. All of my family lives in a another state so it was really nice to have someone I felt comfortable with and who knew what they were doing to help me. I would 100% recommend Whitney to anyone! Great guy and great service!

Came on time (even a little early - good). Knew what he was doing & came prepared. The job was done in very reasonable time, about what was estimated. I would hire him again.

Dan was early and ready to service my vehicle. He showed me the flaws in the belt which was causing the problem , test drove it and left the area clean. I felt as if he was very knowledgeable regarding the job and I felt good about leaving my car in his hands. Thanks Dan Cindy

Timing Belt Replacement Service

What is a timing belt and how does it work?

An engine timing belt is a fiber reinforced, toothed drive belt manufactured using durable compounds such as highly saturated nitrile. The timing belt allows the crankshaft to drive the camshafts in the cylinder head at half the RPMs of the crankshaft. The camshafts then open and close the engine’s intake and exhaust valves in time with the movement and position of the pistons in the engine.

Timing Belt

When to replace the timing belt?

  • Every 60k-90k miles. If an engine is equipped with a timing belt, the timing belt must be replaced at the service interval specified by the vehicle manufacturer regardless of whether or not any problem is visible, typically in the range of 60,000 to 90,000 miles. Your vehicle owner’s manual should state the specific service interval.
  • Engine stops abruptly or will not start. Occasionally, timing belts can break, or skip, while the engine is running.
  • Rough engine operation. The molded, reinforced teeth on the timing belt engage gears on the crankshaft and camshafts. After many tens of thousands of miles, the teeth can wear or break, or the belt can stretch, thus causing the belt to jump position on the crankshaft or camshaft gears. Should the belt jump, the engine will run poorly and perhaps not at all.
  • Banging or clanking engine noise. On some engines, if the timing belt has jumped, the pistons and valves can collide and there will be noise and damage. These engine designs are referred to as interference engines. If your car has an interference engine, replacing the timing belt according to the maintenance schedule will minimize the chance that a belt failure will cause engine damage.

How do mechanics replace the timing belt?

Engine designs vary, and thus the replacement procedure will vary, but broadly, the procedure is as follows:

  • Disconnect the battery ground cable.
  • Once the engine is cold, set the crankshaft to top dead center with the number one piston on the compression stroke. Remove crankshaft pulley.
  • Remove all accessories interfering with the removal of the timing belt covers.
  • Remove timing belt covers. Lock camshafts, as required, and note position of camshaft timing marks. Remove timing belt tensioner and idler pulleys. Remove timing belt.
  • If replacing the water pump, do so at this time, and of course drain the cooling system first. If the engine cooling system thermostat is only accessible with water pump replacement, the thermostat should be replaced as well.
  • Installation of the new timing belt includes all of the above steps, performed in reverse, following strict guidelines to assure camshaft and crankshaft (and balancing shaft, if equipped) are in perfect alignment after tensioner has been set.
  • Upon completion of the installation, the engine crankshaft is turned by hand 720 degrees and the correct position of the timing marks on the crankshaft and the camshafts is confirmed.
  • The vehicle is road tested to confirm normal operation and a service sticker is affixed to the engine noting the date of belt replacement and the vehicle mileage.

Is it safe to drive with a timing belt problem?

No, were a worn out timing belt to snap while underway, perhaps on a highway, it creates a risk of complete loss of engine power while surrounded by fast moving vehicles. Once your vehicle has reached the recommended replacement mileage for the belt, you can eliminate the risk of sudden and unexpected timing belt breakage by having it replaced. If your engine is of the interference type, it is especially important to replace the belt according to the maintenance schedule because sudden breakage of the timing belt, while the engine is running, will likely cause significant damage to internal engine components such as the valves and pistons.

When replacing the timing belt keep in mind:

  • An interference engine should be carefully inspected before a broken timing belt is replaced because it may have sustained damage that will have to be repaired prior to installing a new belt.
  • The timing belt system includes idler pulleys and a belt tensioner. These components should be replaced along with the belt.
  • On some cars, the timing belt drives the engine’s water pump. Mechanics will usually recommend replacing the water pump at the same time that the timing belt is replaced.
