Timing Belt

Why Is It Important to Replace My Timing Belt?

As with many different parts of your vehicle, the timing belt should be inspected and replaced as needed. Without a properly working timing belt, your engine could fail. Your vehicle could also experience permanent damage caused by a broken or malfunctioning belt. Your typical Ford vehicle will need its timing belt replaced between 50,000 and 70,000 miles. A quick inspection can determine if it’s time for a replacement. It’s always better to replace your timing belt before it causes a problem.

A multi-point inspection by a trained professional is a process that can usually catch a timing belt concern. However, you should also keep an eye (and ear) out for several signs that your timing belt isn’t functioning properly. A battery or starter issue can cause your engine not to start correctly, but a timing belt can also be the culprit. You may smell some very pungent fumes coming from your engine bay when you try to start your vehicle. This could come from a dried out and damaged timing belt. You don’t want to ignore any of these warning signs.

It might seem more affordable to use third-party aftermarket parts for your automobile, but there are several concerns that we have with these parts. The fit may be slightly off. This can cause problems that are far more severe than what you started with. You usually don’t get warranties from aftermarket parts like you would with an original equipment manufacturer (OEM) item. We stock a lot of OEM parts at our service center, but we can quickly acquire an item from a specific manufacturer if needed.
