Timing Belt in Canada

Buy Timing Belt at

The Timing Belt serves a very important role when it comes to making your engine run. This is the belt that controls the camshafts in the engine and keeps the whole operation running smoothly. Your Timing Belt must be calibrated properly in order to move in time with motions of the pistons.

If your belt cracks or breaks, it will cause your engine to suddenly stop. It can cause irreparable damage to your engine. You should change it every 50,000 to 75,000 miles. Check your owners manual for specifics on your car model. Some say you do not need to change your belt for 100,000 miles, but to be safe you really shouldn't wait more than 80,000 miles.

Older cars with higher mileage are the most at risk for belt failures. You may be very diligent in getting your oil changed every 3,000 miles, but changing your Timing Belt is often forgotten or overlooked until it is too late.

Make sure to get your Timing Belt changed regularly, even if it means you have to make a special trip to the mechanic just for this purpose. It literally could mean the difference between having a car that runs and having a large chunk of metal that is useless.
