The timing belt in your engine controls the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves. Plant City auto owners need to replace it on a schedule to avoid failure.
Timing belts are very challenging to get to, requiring quite a bit of labor to access. Timing belt replacement is one of the more costly maintenance services, but the cost to fix an engine damaged by a broken timing belt is much, much more.
The timing belt has a tensioner to help maintain proper belt tension. The tensioner should be replaced along with the timing belt and any idler pulleys at the automobile manufacturer’s specified service interval. Your friendly Affordable Automotive tech can help you with the timing.
