Timing Belt Replacement Service with Vision Hyundai Henrietta Rochester
A timing belt, also known as a cambelt, is a flat-toothed belt that is responsible for controlling the timing of a vehicle’s engine valves and camshaft and crankshaft rotation. The belt runs outside of the engine and is covered by a special protective cover. Vision Hyundai Henrietta Rochester has you covered on any timing belt service you may need.
Why Is It Important to Replace the Timing Belt On-time?
Failing of the timing belt is a serious problem that can cause severe engine damage. Therefore, it is important that the belt gets checked and replaced before it slips or breaks. We recommend replacing it every 60,000 – 100,000 miles, but it may be needed more often, depending on your vehicle and the belt manufacturer’s make.
How Serious a Timing Belt Failure Can Be
If the belt breaks while your car is in motion, it can cause serious engine damage, especially if your vehicle does not have a non-interference engine. If the cambelt gets broken when your car is standing still, you will not be able to start the engine at all.
Signs of a Broken or Failing Timing Belt
Ticking noise. It is one of the most common and first signs of the failing belt. If you are hearing a ticking noise produced by the engine while you are driving, it is time to check your cambelt.
You cannot start the engine. You will face this problem if the belt is completely broken.
Leaking oil. If the belt starts failing, the bolts and nuts securing the belt’s cover can become loose, which will cause an oil leak.
Engine misfires. The failing timing belt can affect the engine’s timing, which leads to misfires. Therefore, if you start experiencing misfires, it is a bad sign and you should get your cambelt checked as soon as possible.
Significant loss of power. If the timing belt is not good, your car may start losing acceleration power.
The flashing engine light. Usually, it is either the sign that there is something wrong with the engine, or that your cambelt is failing.
