I had Rocco out today to replace the timing belt and water pump on my 1999 Accord. He performed the service while I watched and asked questions as if he had done it a hundred times. He had all the right tools and was very clean about his work. The job was done in my driveway and when he left, it was as if he had never been there. While doing the work, he is inspecting everything he sees and will quickly point out anything that may be a future problem. He noticed the upper radiator hose wearing at the pressure clamp where the hose connects to the motor block and suggested I replace it soon. He also recommended changing the valve cover gasket since there was a little seepage and the seal was now broke and likely to leak. He called and had the part placed on hold and I picked it up while he kept working. He installed the new gasket so I no longer have to worry about a leak. Rocco is very profession and personable. Most importantly, he is very knowledgeable and will give you an honest opinion. I will definitely request his service again.
Rocco made my first experience pain free. So I asked him to do some more work for me. Will be using his services again.

Happy with Raul, Happy with YourMechanic. I've owned over 300 cars, 2 shops and I am a car historian, so I'm pretty familiar with auto repairs. I inherited my aunt's '01 Camry with 45,000 miles. I like seeing guys with lots of experience working on my car. Raul was superior. But then, so was my last experience. Your service is really good for "car guys" as well as everybody else!

Very pleased with Robert's work, and my interaction with him. He went beyond what I contracted. I will request him again when I need more work done. I'll just add, I like this new mode of car service that YourMechanic offers. I also am pleased about the documentation [pics] that came with the receipt. I will take any opportunity to recommend this service to my friends. The timing belt replacement would have cost 3x as much at Chrysler service.

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.
