Grzegorz is a trust worthy mechanic, He installed a new Engine/drive belt plus a water pump on my 2005 Honda Civic. He answered all the questions that I had for him, he also gave me some pointers on car parts and how to fix things for my self . I recommend him on fixing your car as well.

Robert did a good job on the car, what I like the most is the after service. He called to check on how the car is going and if I need anything. After 1k miles a minor accident happened on coolant leakage. I called him and in 20 minutes he appeared, although it was a weekend, and inspected the car, identified the problem and fixed in in 15 minutes and I was back on the road in less than 1 hour free of charge. I am really impressed with how he backs up his work. I will definitely keep using Robert's services for my car in the future.
Friendly and skilled - knows his shit about cars. Did a great job and was very gracious with the pricing, helped me really understand the work that was being done. I was nervous about this experience as it was my first time with the company but after working with Robert I would absolutely come back to these guys. Thanks dude!!

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.
Patrick did a great job! I appreciate his feedback and overall professionalism.

David did a great job on my PT. It was a big job to do. Took more then one day to finish but I knew it would take a lease two. Would have David work on all my other car for sure.
David was great. Took really good care of my car and was very professional.

Junior is an excellent mechanic. Unfortunately the job took a lot longer than originally expected but Junior reminded positive and completed the job. I'm very knowledgeable of cars, while speaking to him about other work I need to get done to my car he was very truthful and that was refreshing. I will definitely have Junior work on my car in the future.

Kelly did an excellent job. He came across a very odd component of the process but put an extra effort - above and beyond - to complete the job. He worked very hard and I was impressed with the results. Will definitely request Kelly when we come across another fixer.

This was my first time using YourMechanic. I booked Chris to do a timing belt and water pump replacement on my car. Not only did he do an excellent job, he was also able to inform me of a few other things that needed to be taken care of on my car. He communicated with me well and explained everything to me thoroughly. Chris got me all taken care of for an affordable price and with great convenience to me. I would highly recommend this mechanic and will definitely contact him again in the future.

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.
