What's Important About the Timing Belt?

Your car has a variety of belts that help it to operate in the appropriate manner. If one of the belts break, the engine can malfunction. This is especially true if the timing belt breaks. Your car can't operate without a timing belt.

Timing belts are made of a rubber compound that is very durable as far as belts go. Most timing belts will last for several thousand miles. However, they do need to be changed at around the 60,000-mile mark. Some manufacturers recommend changing it later on. A few vehicles still have a timing chain made of metal. These are not maintained in the same manner as a timing belt.

When it is time to change your timing belt, bring your vehicle to Power of Bowser located in Pleasant Hills. The service professionals will be able to change your timing belt and perform any other needed service that your vehicle needs.
