A timing belt is like the choreographer of your European vehicle’s engine. It’s a critical component to reliable functioning of your car. Like other belts and hoses on your vehicle, a timing belt can wear out and deteriorate. If it breaks, your engine will stop and leave you stranded. It can even damage critical systems in your car. Even with new models, timing belts need to be inspected and replaced at regular intervals.
We’ll review the manufacturer recommendations for when your timing belt should be inspected and replaced. We typically replace timing belts with a 90,000 mile service.
