Timing Belt Replacement at Eastgate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram
Your car, truck or SUV with smaller engine sizes have a timing belt that is very important for operating your vehicle. The timing belt rotates your engine's cam and crankshaft in sync to ensure that each cylinder in your engine fires at the right time. Timing belts are made from high-quality rubber and reinforced with nylon cords to extend the life of the belt. However, eventually, you will need to replace your timing belt or your engine will not run. Come into the service center at Eastgate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram for timing belt service today!
Fortunately, there are some signs to alert you to needing a new timing belt. When your timing belt is wearing out, you may hear a ticking sound inside your engine as an indicator that you need service. When your timing belt is getting worn, it may have small chunks of the rubber that are missing on it. Your engine may not turn over or ignite if your timing belt is broken inside. In this instance, your vehicle will not start at all. Many times a timing belt will break while your engine is running too. Other signs of needing a new timing belt are engine misfires because it's out of sync or oil leaking from in front of the motor at the timing belt cover.
When Should I Get Timing Belt Service?
If you notice any ticking sound or it's harder to start your engine, you should get your vehicle to a mechanic right away. If you wait to be serviced, your timing belt may break and leave you stranded. In this case, you would have the additional expense of a wrecker towing you to a mechanic shop on top of the timing belt cost.
