Timing Belt Replacement Service



Timing Belt Replacement Service






Timing Belt Replacement In Elgin, IL

The timing belt is one of the most critical components of your Honda's engine. Unfortunately, it is also one that many drivers overlook. Replacing the timing belt can be quite costly, typically running around $500 to $1,000. Because of the hefty expense, many drivers choose to put off replacing the timing belt, but this can be incredibly dangerous, both for you and other drivers on the road. Here's what you need to know.


How the Timing Belt Works

Your vehicle's timing belt is responsible for synchronizing all of the moving parts within your engine. This includes both the crankshaft and camshaft, as well as the engine valves. All of these parts need to be working in perfect timing for your engine to function properly.

Failing to Get a Replacement Service

If you fail to replace your timing belt, it is likely to rip or snap. This will cause your engine to seize up, which can be a major problem if you are traveling at high speeds. Not only that, but the snapping motion can also cause further damage to your engine, which will end up costing you even more in repairs. There is typically no way to tell when your timing belt might break other than general wear and tear on it. This is why it is so crucial to stick to the manufacturer's guidelines concerning the replacement schedule. For most vehicles, this will fall somewhere between 60,000 and 100,000 miles. Check your owner's manual for the specific timeline for your vehicle so you don't miss this crucial service.
