IT’S JUST A MATTER OF TIME
Timing belt failure is just a matter of time for any vehicle. This is because belts will age and deteriorate as time passes. When you face this issue it’s best to have it replaced by a qualified professional.
Keep in mind that belt failure can lead to further engine damages. In fact, these repairs could become quite costly, especially for an older vehicle. Therefore, it’s best to have your car’s belt replaced as recommended by your vehicle manufacturer. If you need a replacement then the professional auto mechanics at Carolina Auto Service can evaluate whether your engine has been damaged, as well. We can diagnose and replace the belt and repair and engine problems you may have.
Most manufacturers suggest that you replace your car’s timing belt every 60,000 to 110,000 miles. This will all depend on the make and model of your vehicle, as well as your personal driving habits. We’ve seen belts last a long time, but we’ve also seen belts show signs of problems relatively quickly. That’s why it’s always best to have your car’s engine inspected regularly, and to bring your vehicle in for repairs at the first sign of problems.
