Efficient and courteous. Thank you for taking care of my old Civic "Bertha".
There was an unfortunate parts mix-up (which I didn't think would happen booking a week in advance) that caused my appointment to end up starting four hours later than scheduled, which caused some disturbance to the rest of my day- but the work was top notch, faster than estimated, far cheaper than any shop in town, and done with friendly professionalism. Will absolutely book with Kyle again.

very knowledgeable and informative about what he was doing
Joshua was GREAT! He worked cleanly (first spreading a tarp and mat to catch any drips/drops), safely (jacking up the car and placing the front end on solid jack stands), and knew what he was doing. He ask several questions about the engine before starting to replace the timing belt. He came with all the possible parts he would need even though he didn't use all of them. Since we had a new water pump he gave us a credit for the one not used. He explained what he found and what caused the engine to not run correctly. The concept of Your Mechanic coming to our house to do the repairs saved us towing and repair costs, not to mention the free education I received as Joshua explained what he was doing and finding. He worked quickly and quietly and completed the repairs within the estimated time. He did a very complete cleanup of the car and work area before leaving. Recommend him and Your Mechanic - absolutely. We are hoping to have YourMechanic work on our other cars.

Mr Carter did an impressive job of getting my Lexus running again. I have been driving it today and I am reasonably satisfied.
Jeff checked to make sure the water pump was bad before he started work, which was very fast & he went over & beyond my expectations. Well done!

Pat was, simply put, absolutely amazing. We had initially arranged for a timing belt replacement on my PT Cruiser, and as he worked on it he noticed a few other issues that needed to be addressed, which he handled wonderfully. Pat is very clearly experienced in his field, meticulous in his work, and communicative with his customers. He stresses his desire to give 100% often, so, for those who are willing to work with him as he does his best, I highly, highly recommend him.

Rusty was very knowledgeable and helpful! Arrived right on time and got straight to work. Even though the appointment went longer than expected, Rusty was very thorough in his work and checking to make sure the whole car was in good shape. Would definitively book him again and y'all should too.

Ryan is the Real Deal, an expert mechanic who showed up on time, neat in appearance, friendly, well spoken, and fully prepared and equipped to do the job we've asked him to do. I consider replacement of a timing belt a big job. Ryan didn't break a sweat and had the job finished, the engine back together, everything cleaned up, his tools and equipment packed away in exactly four hours from the moment he arrived at our home. He's obviously very competent and confident in what he does. Thanks, Ryan, we'll definitely call Your Mechanic and request you when the need arises again.

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.
