Timing Belt Maintenance

In order for your engine to run properly, your vehicle is equipped with either a timing belt or a timing chain. Most cars built today have a timing belt that will need to be replaced at some point in the life of the vehicle. Timing chains are not designed to have to be replaced.

A timing belt is made of thick material with notches. Most car manufacturers recommend changing the timing belt at 60,000-mile intervals. Some do not need to be changed to 100,000 miles. If you hear a high-pitched noise from the engine area, this may be a signal that your timing belt needs to be changed right away. If the timing belt looks frayed, it should be changed right away as well.
