Timing Belt Replacement in Austin, TX, and the Area

The timing belt in your vehicle is a vital component of the engine and is essential to a working vehicle. A snapped timing belt can cause complete engine failure and may also cause expensive damage to the engine. For this reason, it is important to have your timing belt inspected regularly to check for wear or cracks. If your timing belt is cracked or drying out, it should be replaced to avoid a snapped timing belt.

Don’t wait until the timing belt snaps in your vehicle causing a stressful breakdown. At Austin’s Automotive Specialists in Austin, TX, our ASE certified technicians are experienced and specially trained to replace timing belts on all makes and models of vehicles. If you suspect a problem with your vehicle’s timing belt, don’t hesitate to bring your vehicle into our shop at the first sign of trouble.

If your vehicle’s timing belt breaks, your vehicle will not run. Belts naturally wear over time with normal driving habits and can often snap or break due to this wearing out. We recommend that your vehicle’s belts are inspected at least once a year, but our mechanics will check your timing belt each time you visit our shop to make sure there is no visible cracking or damage.

The following symptoms can indicate a problem with a belt in your vehicle:

  • Engine failure
  • Grinding noises while driving
  • Lack of power
  • Vibrating while driving
  • Vehicle “slipping”
