Just fantastic. He arrived quite early and not only did the job fairly quick, but I also got a general assessment on my old Lexus. Highly recommended!
He did an excellent job! In spite of the rain, he was very diligent and thorough and gave me piece of mind reassuring me that my car will be more than fine. Highly recommend!

Excellent, meticulous work. He didn't mind that I was curious and wanted to understand what had gone wrong with my car and he was helpful in educating me. The best car repair experience I ever had!!!!!!!!!! Highly recommend.
Jonathan was professional and knowledgeable. He encountered an issue with my timing belt caused by a previous mechanic but was able to fix it. I was very impressed and pleased with his work.

We could not be more pleased with Christian's service. Our Van runs more smoothly no than it has in years. We received an estimate from another auto shop to repair the van for $2,200. Christian did it for $1,500.

Awesome service, thank you so much! At the end of the service he told me of all of the other issues he noticed with my car that I didn't know about - radiator fan always on, thinning brake pads, possible engine oil leak...yup, pretty embarrassing. But Whitney was very professional about it, and even prepared me with a summary with all of this information - really appreciate that extra mile he went!

I would definitely use Mr Jerome again. It kept raining so he had to stop working on the car when a down pour came so it took longer than expected and he worked on my car until it fixed and running. Thank you Mr Jerome you are my new mechanic

GOOD JOB, BUT DISAPPOINTED ON THE WAY BRAKE JOBS ARE PERFORMED, IN MOST CASES THE BRAKE PERSON WILL GIVE YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO CHANGE OUT THE DISCS AND BE PREPARED TO CHANGE THEM OUT IF NECESSARY. THE MECHANIC DID NOT BRING THE ROTORS OR GIVE THE CUSTOMER THE OPTION OF PURCHASING THE ROTORS AND CHANGING THEM OUT, INSTEAD OFFERING A NEW QUOTE, SO FEEL TAKEN ADVANTAGE OF. OTHER THAN THIS ISSUE, THE MECHANIC DID A GOOD JOB, CHANGING OUT THE WATER PUMP, BRAKE PADS, BRAKE FLUSH, AND TIMING BELT.

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.
