TIMING IS EVERYTHING RIGHT? IT’S CRITICAL FOR YOUR VEHICLE’S ENGINE!

The timing system ensures that the hundreds of moving parts inside of your engine move in perfect synchronization for the engine to run properly. A small disruption in this synchronization can cause your engine to run poorly and a large disruption will cause the engine to not run at all.

DID YOU KNOW?

Your vehicle is an important investment, regular maintenance and system-smart repairs are the best way to protect it.

Be System Smart

95% of timing failures happen after ONLY the belt was replaced.

Protect Your Investment

An engine that has run low on oil can prematurely strip a timing belt.

PRO(TECT) TIP

Why take a chance? Ensure the best engine performance, longest engine life and avoid the costly labor charges that can pile up if you only replace each part separately as it breaks.

Tensioner & Idler Bearings

Keeps the belt tight ensuring maximum performance. A worn or rattling tensioner or idler bearing will result in a loose belt that slips causing noise and excess heat. Failure to replace the tensioner & idler bearing often leads to premature belt failure.

Water Pump

The heart of the engine, it pumps coolant through the engine to cool down the hottest parts ensuring optimal engine temperature and performance. The water pump is driven by the timing belt.

Timing Belt

The timing belt synchronizes the rotation of components and ensures that the engine's valves open and close at proper times. A broken timing belt can result in heavy damage to the engine that can cost thousands of dollars in repairs.
