Find a mechanic for a Timing Belt replacement

Although not all cars have timing belts, those that do must have the belt replaced on a routine basis. If the belt stretches or breaks, internal engine components may collide, causing catastrophic damage and a massive repair bill. Also, timing belt replacement is a very precise job that can ruin your car’s engine if done incorrectly. That’s why, when the time comes for replacement, you’ll want to find a mechanic who can do the job right. Use the following tips to find a qualified professional you can trust.

How to find a mobile mechanic for a Timing Belt replacement?

Select a certified professional

The new car smell may be long gone, but that doesn’t mean your car doesn’t deserve the best – even if it’s seen better days. You don’t want just anyone popping the hood and poking around. Look for a certified mechanic who has experience working with your car’s make and model. Also, keep in mind, there are many different areas a technician can specialize in. You’ll want to choose someone who has A1 Engine Repair certification.

Do they have a good reputation?

Recommendations, either via word-of-mouth or internet reviews, are a great way to find a stellar mechanic. If a repair business has been around for a long time and has a devoted following, you can bet they operate with intelligence and integrity.

Do they seem professional?

Repair in your driveway should be a professional experience. You’ll know you’re in good hands when a mechanic, in a clean uniform, arrives in a company vehicle equipped with tools and car parts to complete the job. Time to raise your standards.

Don’t be left guessing about quality

Timing belt quality varies, as does the caliber of the work being performed. Always ask about warranties when you schedule an appointment. Warranties offer quality assurance and protect you in the rare case that something goes wrong with your repair.

How to find a local repair shop for a Timing Belt replacement?

Look for a certified mechanic

Check to make sure the shop is working with only the best, aka ASE certified professionals. In particular, you’ll want to ask whether the mechanic assigned to your car has A1 Engine Repair certification. And if the shop doesn’t have the right credentials, move on.

Reputation is everything

The best shops have a loyal clientele – and a packed schedule to prove it. Online recommendations or word-of-mouth suggestions will help you find a mechanic with an outstanding reputation.

Are they helpful?

A good shop will take the time to explain the timing belt replacement process in detail. They will also be honest about pricing (including giving you an estimate for parts and labor) and won’t try to add on any unnecessary repairs.

Do they offer a warranty?

You don’t want to experience engine damage due to a low-quality timing belt or poor workmanship. Ask about warranty coverage when you schedule your appointment. A sound warranty provides peace of mind that you’re getting an OEM-grade timing belt and expert repair.

What is a Timing Belt?

A timing belt (or sometimes timing chain) connects the crankshaft to the camshaft or camshafts. The crankshaft is directly connected to the piston, and uses the engine’s power to turn the wheels. The camshafts open and close the valves. By connecting the crankshaft and camshafts with a timing belt or timing chain, these components are able to be synchronized, ensuring that the valves open and close at the right time for the piston.

Symptoms of a failing Timing Belt

Noise from the engine

If you notice a sound coming from under the hood, specifically a whirring or rapping noise, then it might be the timing belt or chain.

Poor engine performance

If the timing belt isn’t working right, then the crankshaft and camshafts won’t be synced properly, and the engine will not perform effectively. That means you’ll have less power, and also worse fuel mileage.

Engine stops running

Extensive damage can be done to the engine when the timing belt or chain breaks. If your car won’t run, then the timing belt could likely be a cause.

Check engine light

Your car’s computer will likely notice if the timing belt or timing chain isn’t doing it’s job, because the engine won’t be functioning properly. If that happens, the check engine light will become illuminated.

How urgent is a Timing Belt replacement?

Timing belts are part of routinely scheduled maintenance, and should be replaced preemptively, depending on the manufacturer’s schedule. Timing chains are designed to last the life of your vehicle, and don’t need replacement unless something happens to them. If a timing belt or timing chain stops working properly, it should be replaced immediately, before damage is done to your engine.
