When To Change Your Timing Belt

It is important to understand when your timing belt needs to be changed and to have it replaced at that time. Timing belt replacement could be costly but could cause more costly repairs if left untouched.

These problems could include bent pistons or rods, which are costly repairs, and could lead to engine replacement altogether. The best way to avoid this is to upkeep on timing belt maintenance.
