Timing Belt and Chain Maintenance

It's not a part of your vehicle that you probably think about very often, but the timing belt is a vital piece of equipment. If the timing belt or chain breaks, your vehicle will stop running, and the engine can experience irreparable damage. Philpott Pre-Owned Super Center wants you to make sure that you have your timing belt maintained properly.

Your vehicle will have either a timing belt or chain. A timing chain is lubricated and does not need to be changed. The timing belt is made out of thick rubber. The timing belt needs to be changed at regular intervals. Manufacturers vary as to when the belt should be changed. Always follow your manufacturer's recommendation.

Have your timing belt checked at each service interval. If the belt has cracks or is frayed, it should be replaced. If the timing belt is making a whistling or whining noise, you should replace the timing belt.
