Arrived early and was very polite, answered all of my questions, and worked quickly and efficiently.
What a great concept! Less expensive car maintenance that doesn’t get more convenient than your car mechanic making a house call. Jeffrey was on time, professional & honest (as is his wife!). Not only did he change my timing belt but he took care of other eroding belts as well (while showing & explaining to me exactly what was wrong). I have finally found someone I trust to work on my car!

It was a completely professional experience. But the added bonus was how much fun it was. What a charming and delightful person, and very educational. I can't wait to have him back to work on another car. The work was done in under the time it was estimated and the car purrs like a new kitten. Very, very happy and satisfied with the entire process.

We had the best experience with David Martin at YourMechanic.com and would completely recommend both for anyone needing an honest, meticulous, and very smart mechanic with a great personality. I had a unique situation that needed a mechanic with the best care and David completely delivered. My Mitsubishi Montero Sport had been garaged for 4 years because I had been traveling so there were a lot of unique things that needed to be done to get it back on the road safely. It only had 17,000 miles so it was still relatively new, but letting a vehicle sit for that long can cause a lot of problems. David let me know what were the most important parts to fix and told me where I didn't need to spend so much money on parts and time because they could wait until 75,000-100,000 miles etc. He changed the timing belt under my insistence because I wanted peace of mind that the rubber had not dry rotted with so many years of non-use. He also replaced the water pump, serpentine belts, fuel filter, front brake pads, and adjusted rear drum brakes, flushed and replaced coolant, rotated tires, and changed the oil. He even replaced a missing lug nut with wheel locks (which was my fault from not tightening them enough a few days earlier when painting the wheels myself so he saved a potential catastrophe from happening because a few other lug nuts were loose as well). David is very thorough with all his diagnoses of problems and finds the best way to fix them efficiently without any wasted money or time. Most importantly, I know David is very honest and trustworthy. He's not looking to find problems that need costly "fixes" if they aren't absolutely necessary and that's such a rare attribute to find with mechanics these days. He has won my business for this and any future car work... As well as won my family and friends' business as well because I have recommended him and YourMechanic.com to all of them. Thanks so much David!

Initially I have no idea that this kind of service exist like a house call. I was skeptical at first but my idea has changed. Mr. Joseph Smith arrived on time and ready to work. He was very informative and discussed with me what he was going to do. He showed me the materials and equipment to be replaced which you will not get to see if it was done at your dealership. The job was done within the proposed time and even made sure that my vehicle was clean. Gave me information on what is needed on the next service interval. Overall, I am happy with the service. I do recommend Joseph for your car maintenance need. I will use his service 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.
