Looking for timing belt replacement in North Hollywood, CA? North Hollywood Auto Repair is your one-stop shop in the Los Angeles region for all things related to your vehicles’ timing belt service.
Generally, the timing belt (or timing chain) is the sole component that keeps the camshaft and crankshaft in sync. Replacing the timing belt (a cogged reinforced-rubber belt) at regular service intervals — generally every 60,000 miles unless the automobile manufacturer specifies longer — is a lot less expensive and aggravating than having it break while the engine is running.
A broken timing belt usually means catastrophe for an interference engine, and major inconvenience for a non-interference engine. In an interference engine, the valves and piston share the same air space. They never touch, unless your timing belt breaks or skips, and this is a catastrophic failure that requires removing the head and replacing bent valves. Non-interference engines do not risk this contact if the timing belt goes. Nonetheless, either situation can leave you stranded, so regular timing belt service is very important.
We will be happy to replace and service your vehicle’s timing belt at North Hollywood Auto Repair.
