When Should You Replace Your Timing Belt?

Is your engine running roughly? Do you have difficult starting or a stalling car engine? Your timing belt may be causing the issue. Timing chains and timing belts must keep your engine rotating by syncing the camshaft and crankshaft in a rhythmic motion. Most engines today have a timing belt made of rubber, but older cars still have timing chains.

One of the most telling signs of a wearing timing belt is chattering or screeching noise. If you want to prevent these issues, you should get your timing belt checked at 60,000 miles or earlier if you think there might be an issue.

Timing belts may not need to be replaced in newer calls until 100,000 miles. You can prevent timing belt issues by always having your engine oil changed on time, fixing oil filters, and checking any unusual sounds from your engine right away. If you have any issues with your timing belt, visit the service center at Napleton’s Northwestern Chrysler Jeep Dodge in Chicago, IL.
