Chevrolet Engine Timing Belt Inspection & Replacement in Norwalk, IA

Gregg Young Chevrolet helps car owners in Norwalk, IA, Des Moines, Indianola, and West Des Moines, IA with their car maintenance and repairs. A timing belt is a rubber belt with teeth that helps to keep the crankshaft of the car in sync with the camshaft. It ensures the engine valves and pistons are working in the right sequence. It is a durable part, and most are reinforced with nylon. The timing belt will need to be changed out about every 90,000 miles. An experienced mechanic will be able to look at it and take care of it.

Inspecting your Engine Timing Belt

Your car will give you some indications that the timing belt needs to be changed. The first thing that might happen is that the engine might not turn over. The timing belt is key to getting the car to start. If it’s damaged, you may hear the starter engine when you turn your key, but the motor won’t ignite. If the engine misfires, it can also be due to a worn-out timing belt. This affects the firing rate of the engine. Older belts will slip along the camshaft of the engine, and the pistons might malfunction because of the valves being out of sequence.

A ticking noise can be another sign that the timing belt is not working correctly. When it starts to break down, it can potentially cause combustion issues because the cylinder head valves that transfer the burnt fuel through the exhaust chamber are out of sync. This results in a ticking sound that you can hear, and it is a red flag for your timing belt. A cracked timing belt can cause a motor leak on the front side. Motor oil can seep through the cover, which is held in place by nuts and bolts. These can become loose over time. The gasket between the timing belt cover and the engine block can wear out if the engine overheats.

When to Replace Your Timing Belt

Timing belts can be replaced every 6-10 years and from 60,000 miles to 100,000 miles. The owner’s manual will indicate when it is time to change the timing belt, and it is good to keep on top of this maintenance schedule.
