Repairing and Replacing Timing Belts for Cars in Brentwood
You might not think of your timing belt as one of your car’s most important parts, and you may not even know what it does. As part of the internal combustion engine, it is responsible for synchronizing your crankshaft and camshaft’s rotation to ensure that your valves open and close properly. If you need timing belt replacement, Auto Import Service can offer the service you need for your car, truck or imported vehicle. We serve customers in the greater East Bay area, so when it comes to timing belt repair, you can come to us for the maintenance you need.
When to Replace Your Vehicle’s Belts
Timing belt replacement is a “must do” service that many car owners overlook. Your Timing belt needs replacement at the intervals prescribed by the auto manufacturer. Please refer to your automobile owner’s manual for the exact replacement intervals. If the timing belt jumps a tooth on the sprocket on which it rides or the belt fails altogether the valves and pistons will “interfere” with each other. This can cause catestrophic engine damage costing you thousands of dollars to repair. If you are unsure of your car manufacturers specified replacement interval, please feel free to call us and we can help!
