Timing Belt Replacement in Spanish Fork, UT
The timing belt is a crucial component within the engine that helps to ensure that the timing of certain processes work in sync so that your engine runs smoothly and efficiently. The timing belt controls the camshaft of your engine, opening and closing valves just at the right moment.

The timing belt is made of rubber, which means that over time it can start to wear down, dry out, and crack. It typically needs to be replaced every 60,000 miles or so, and you can refer to your vehicle’s owner’s manual for more detailed information regarding the correct service interval for your specific vehicle. The key to the timing belt replacement is replacing it before it breaks. When it does break, it can cause extensive damage to internal engine parts, which can be costly repair. This is why replacing it according to recommended intervals is so important.
If you’re not sure when your vehicle last had a timing belt replacement, we recommend bringing your vehicle into Dickerson Automotive for an inspection. We can take a look at the timing belt’s condition to determine if it needs to be replaced. While doing our timing belt replacement inspection, we also take a look at the timing belt tensioner and water pump to see if they need to be replaced as well. Oftentimes, these additional parts are replaced at the same time as the timing belt because the process to get to these parts is the same, and is quite extensive.
