Some of you may know what a timing belt is and what it does. Some of you may not know and are afraid to ask. Well, the timing belt is like your spine, it allows you to run or walk. An engine can be separated into two pieces: torso and legs. The timing belt is what keeps the torso and legs synchronized. Once the timing belt breaks, legs will move while the torso will not. This will cause the engine to STOP RUNNING!!!!

There are many times when our customers ask us to inspect the condition of the timing belt. We advise them that is impossible to know how many more miles or years the belt will last. Often times, the timing belt doesn't show any cracks. There are ZERO signs of fatigue or physical damage, yet the timing belt can still fail.

Most timing belts have a life expectancy of 90,000-100,000 miles or 7 years, whichever comes first. Not replacing your timing belt during the recommend service interval can cause severe engine failure and inconvenience. To help keep your engine running strong we are offering a $75 OFF special through March 31st, just in time for SPRING BREAK!
