The timing belt is an integral component of your car’s engine. It helps run the rest of its important parts such as the pump for power steering, the air conditioner, and the alternator. Over time, wear and tear can cause your timing belt to weaken and, when left unattended, could potentially break. The resulting damage can be so elaborate that it can lead to the vehicle’s breakdown.
WHY IS TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT IMPORTANT?
A timing belt in top condition improves your car’s horsepower and mileage. Failing to address the weakening of your timing belt affects the performance of your car, and could even cost you your safety! Do not wait for your Acura, Honda, Lexus, Nissan, or Toyota vehicle to be completely damaged before having its timing belt checked by your trusted team of vehicle experts.
WHEN SHOULD YOUR CAR’S TIMING BELT BE REPLACED?
Unlike many other equally important parts of your vehicle, the timing belt is not easily visible or accessible. Because of this, it’s not easy to see if it’s up for a replacement. Your Owner’s Manual details the manufacturer’s timing belt replacement recommendations that usually factor in age and mileage.
Having your timing belt replaced isn’t exactly cheap service but it is definitely less costly than the repairs required to reverse the damage caused by the timing belt slipping or breaking. In fact, having it regularly checked for issues and replacing it when necessary saves you money in the long run.
