The timing belt maintains critical crankshaft-to-camshaft synchronization, keeping valve operation matched to piston position. On some engines, the belt also drives other components. These include the oil pump, water pump, and balance shafts.
Bowman’s Auto Service offers timing belt inspection and replacement. If the timing belt is not replaced regularly, the belt could break, leaving you stranded and possibly causing major engine damage. If you’re having the timing belt replaced, consider replacing other parts that may be accessed at the same time. The water pump, timing belt sprockets and tensioning pulleys are good examples.
Check with your qualified Bowman’s Auto Service service technician about timing belt maintenance.
