Timing Belt Replacement by Tri-Valley Automotive
"Timing Belt Replacement near me" A car that is equipped with a timing belt should have it replaced at around 90,000 miles. Timing belts are considered wear items, meaning that they wear out and manufacturers require their replacement at certain mileage intervals – usually 90K-105K miles.
Replacing timing belts should not be postponed for too long. If the timing belt has broken, at the very least, the car would strand you someplace, or worse, cause major engine damage.
It’s not very likely that your timing belt will break right at 90K, in fact it’s highly unlikely. The belts, being quite rugged, will most likely last quite a while longer; however, is this is a chance you’re willing to take? While performing the complete timing belt service could run several hundred dollars, repairing the engine could run a few thousand.
When we estimate for a timing belt service, the parts we replace include: the timing belt, water pump, new coolant, the front crankshaft seal, the timing belt tensioner, idler pulleys, and drive belts for the alternator, power steering, and air conditioning. Replace all of these parts and you should be good to go for another 90,000 miles.
Many models of Honda, Toyota, Nissan, Mazda, Acura, and Lexus come equipped with a timing belt. If you are not sure if your car has one, and you’re approaching that 90K mileage marker, give us a call – we’ll tell you. We will also provide a quote over the phone.
