The intervals for these services are determined by the manufacturer, but are usually about 50,000 to 70,000 miles.
That little rubber belt keeps your engine “in time.” The pistons, intake valves and exhaust valves all share the same real estate. The timing belt keeps these moving parts from meeting. It also runs the water pump, which keeps the engine cool by circulating coolant through the coolant passages in the engine and out to the radiator.
Keeping up on timing belt services insures that you won’t run into a broken belt; and those small parts sharing the same cylinder space don’t run into each other. Ask your Logan Square Auto Repair mechanic on your next visit when your vehicle manufacturer recommends timing belt replacement and service.
