Timing Belt Replacement
The intricate parts of your Toyota are hard at work under your car's hood. The timing belt, for instance, controls the engine's camshaft. With constant use, it's no wonder that over time these parts age and eventually need replacement. If the timing belt breaks, it could cause costly damage to your engine. Your vehicle's maintenance guide provides the frequency at which the timing belt should be replaced in order to prevent expensive repairs.
How do I know when I need to replace my timing belt?
- Your vehicle's exhaust fumes are heavier and darker than usual
- You detect a loud, screeching noise when you start the engine
- When your engine takes longer than usual to turnover, or won't turnover at all
If you notice any of these signs in your Toyota, it is likely time to replace your timing belt. Schedule an appointment today and our factory-trained technicians will take care of it.
