Automotive Tips from B & M Auto Specialist: Knowing When Your Timing Belt Should Be Replaced

Posted May 15, 2022 11:45 AM

The timing belt in your engine controls the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves. Lafayette drivers need to replace it on a schedule to avoid failure.

Timing belts are very difficult to get to, requiring quite a bit of labor to access. Timing belt replacement is one of the more expensive maintenance services, but the cost at B & M Auto Specialist to correct an engine damaged by a broken timing belt is much, much more.

The timing belt has a tensioner to help maintain proper belt tension. The tensioner should be replaced along with the timing belt and any idler pulleys at the vehicle manufacturer’s specified service interval. Your B & M Auto Specialist service advisor can help you with the timing belt.

Give us a call.
