Timing Belt Replacement
Main Street Shell Service is a full service, ASE certified auto repair shop and a trusted provider for timing belt replacement in Santa Maria.
Without a timing belt, your car or truck wouldn't be able to do much of anything. This special belt keeps the upper half and bottom half of an engine “in time” so that it can effectively complete it’s cycle of intake, compression, power generation, and exhaust. The timing belt is an auto part unlike many others in the sense that it can break or go bad without any noticeable warning signs. This is unfortunate since it plays the vital role of coordinating precise movements between engine valves and pistons.
If your vehicle’s engine has been labeled as an “interference engine”, a lapse in this finely tuned rhythm could result in major damage as the valves and pistons could actually smash into each other. A repair of this magnitude could be extremely costly. For this reason, it’s important to have your timing belt inspected routinely to make sure it’s in good shape.
It’s usually recommended that timing belts be replaced anywhere from 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Make sure to check your owner’s manual or consult with your repair shop about specific recommendations for your vehicle.
Main Street Shell Service provides timing belt inspection and replacement service 6 days a week, Monday through Saturday.
Be sure to have your timing belt inspected regularly if your vehicle has been designated as having an interference engine.
