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.
Grzegorzs is the best mechanic in the Bay Area hands down! He went the extra mile (pun intended) taking care of my Kia spectra to make sure everything was working properly. I never felt taken advantage of or price gouged which unfortunately can happen with a lot of mechanics. Great work!

Whitney was great.. The dude knew what he was doing! Honestly I was a bit scared doing such a big job outside of a shop.. He came in with all the gear he needed in his van.. And literally not a single drop of oil or fluid on the floor. Total professional.
Whitney was excellent and very meticulous at his job. My Elantra runs much smoother and nicer after the Timing belt change. Very happy with the work done !!!

This job was replacing a timing belt on a 2003 Toyota Sequoia. My neighbor had the same job done on his Tundra by our local shop only a week ago and paid $550 (labor only) so the quote of $285 from YourMechanic was a no-brainer. Gary arrived on time and did a very professional and proficient job, everything was rebuilt and torqued against the manual. I have now booked him again for some brake work. I would still use a Toyota shop for any diagnostics but I would not hesitate to use YourMechanic for routine maintenance if they continue to be competitive .
He did a great job. The car runs great. I would refer your company to anyone. I will certainly use you again.

Thank you Derek getting my truck back up and running! I will definitely recommend you to my friends and family and will of course call if anything else is needed again. I’m glad I found YourMechanic and will never go back to an auto shop again.

Overall good service. Could have done without some of the offhand comments saying "shouldn't have taken jobs like this". But overall he did what he was hired to do and was on time and took responsibility for the repair, coming back the next day after poor weather made it unreasonable to continue. He did seem more interested in getting done and going home then doing the job professionally as shown by accidentally crimping wires between the valve cover and the engine block and not noticing that when he refilled the coolant, that half of it was flowing onto the floor rather than into the car.

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.
