When To Replace Timing Belt Or Chain?
You will have to change the timing belt at some point during your vehicle’s life. For most vehicles, the timing belt needs to be replaced at 100,000 miles. In some circumstances, your vehicle may have a timing chain instead of a timing belt. For the timing chains, they can still stretch or break and could be even noisier.
If you look in your owner’s manual, it should tell you when you need to change your timing belt. For the timing belt, you are going to want to change it before it becomes a serious problem. Most vehicles have complicated internal systems and those systems need to work in perfect synchrony. If a timing belt breaks, then the internal parts of the engine are destroyed and that synchrony is gone. All of this happens so quickly, so you might not get a warning and that is why you need to change the timing belt before it becomes a problem.
Change The Water Pump Too
Did you know the timing belt and the water pump pretty much run hand-in-hand? The water pump runs on the timing belt, so our mechanics at Oxford Automotive advise you to replace your water pump at the same time you are replacing your timing belt. They are commonly done together because when we replace your water pump, we basically have to do the exact same work as replacing your timing belt. This is not the case for all makes of vehicles, but it does apply to most.
