Fred was amazing! He showed up on time and was very knowledgeable. He answered my questions and was very efficient. The job was estimated for 4 hours and he finished in 3.
Totally forgot to submit my rating and review for working with Fred... until I just signed on to schedule another repair service... months later... and hoping he was still part of the lineup. That should give a good indication of my experience with Fred. Very polite. Very thorough. Completed the job well within the estimated time. Left the area looking as if he was never even there. And lastly, he took the time to point out some other issues to be mindful of, as well as upcoming related maintenance. No upsell... just simple advisory and advice. I recommend Fred.

Jeffery is a great mechanic that is very detailed in his work. He finds the problem at hand and also checks for other things that may become faulty later. Great guy,very knowlegable and able to explain things in a way all can understand .
Jeff arrived early and he and his wife were very friendly and professional. Asked if there were concerns other than the job assigned & noted those. He finished the repair ahead of scheduled time & also fixed a squeaky serpentine belt. I would highly recommend Jeff!

It was my first experience with this firm. My car required timing belt change. Barinder came to my address on time. He was very professional, friendly, and gave me all the correct advice specifically needed for my car. He finished the work on time and also inspected the car throughly. He also advised on other aspects, by which I can get better, and long lasting service from my car.

I have been a yourmechanic user since the company's early seed funding days. I have recommended yourmechanic to my family and friends and all of them have received great service. But I have to say that Robert by far is the mechanic i've come across with the best attitude, friendliness, trustworthiness and upfront knowledge on hondas and acuras. Last month he serviced my wife's acura and replaced the starter, however in the process the latch to the hood was somehow broken. We called him directly from a number on an invoice to ask about the issue and he immediately made an appt to come see us and rectify the problem, and never hassled us about fault/blame etc. He also explained how it couldve possibly broke when he was fixing it. While he was here I also asked for his advice on my own vehicle and he had no problem helping me determine what I needed service on. Again I cannot emphasize the importance of his customer service -- which coupled by his experienced understanding of my vehicle's shape -- made me request his calendar and book the appointment right there on the spot. So he came today and I gave him the keys, he got right to work and knew exactly what to do and to tell me the time to come back and check up on him. Was able to spot another area that I needed fixing and he got it done swiftly. The man even offered me a donut in the morning, and when he reparked my car back on the driveway after a test drive he also parked it to the side to allow my neighbors room for their vehicles. He pays attention to the little things -- big deal when trusting your ride to someone.

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.

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.
