San Antonio Timing Belt Replacement

Engine timing is extremely important. Valves for air and exhaust need to open and close in each cylinder at just the right time for your engine to run properly. Every vehicle will have a timing chain or timing belt, and it's important to keep them in check. A bad belt or chain can cause the engine to loose time, and possibly damage itself in the case of interference engines. Finsanto is the best option when you're looking for timing component maintenance. Our technicians are top-notch and we provide top-quality services and repairs.

When To Replace Timing Belt or Chain?

Like the drive belt in your engine, the timing belt needs to be replaced at proper intervals, and even sooner if it gets oil or coolant on the belt. Most vehicles with timing belts require belt replacement at 100,000 miles. The advantage of these belts is it leads to a quieter engine.

Some vehicles don't have timing belts, but have timing chains. Timing chains are slightly noisier, but are more durable. But, timing chains can still stretch or break, so if the engine sounds noisier, it's probably time to look at that timing chain. Your owners manual should tell you if your vehicle has a timing belt or a timing chain, or you can give us a call and we can look it up for you.

Modern engines are complex, and require precise timing of the moving components to run at its best. A vehicle that is out of time (the timing is not correct because of a worn belt or chain) will run rough in the best scenario, but can also lock up in the worst scenario. Make sure your timing system is maintained properly to extend the life of your engine.

While You’re At It…

In most vehicles, the pump that moves the coolant (often called a water pump) is driven by the timing belt or chain. We advise replacing this water pump at the same time you replace your timing belt or chain, since we are already in that part of the engine to begin with. Most of the time, these components are done at the same time, because the labor is nearly the exact same to do both jobs. Not all vehicles are built in this way, but most of them are.

At Finsanto, our experienced technicians have been replacing timing chains, timing belts, and water pumps for years. If your vehicle needs a new timing belt, water pump, or timing chain, give us a call or schedule an appointment online.
