Timing belts in Kearsley may be the cause of that ticking sound emanating from your car engine followed by an abrupt stop. If the belt snaps, you are stuck. The only way your car is going anywhere is on a flatbed truck. When the timing belt breaks while the engine is running it can cause additional damage to other engine parts like the cylinder head, crank bearings or oil pump. Timing belts are made of rubber for flexibility with nylon woven through it for strength. They are made to last but if you have a lot of miles on your car check with us at Whitecroft Garage. We will find out when or if you need to have the belt replaced. Our mechanics will answer all your timing belt questions.
When you ignore manufacturer recommendations for vehicle service, you leave yourself vulnerable to a roadside breakdown. In Kearsley, timing belts snapping at high speed can lead to expensive engine repairs beyond the cost of towing and belt replacement. Replacing a timing belt that shows signs of wear is far less expensive than repairing engine damage caused by the break. When your belt shows wear we can replace it at a reasonable cost for you and while we’re at it check that no other engine parts show damage. That bit of preventative maintenance and repair will save you money and aggravation down the road.
