Timing belts, timing chain or cam belt is a part of an internal combustion engine that synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft(s) so that the engine’s valves open and close at the proper times during each cylinder’s intake and exhaust strokes.

Depending on the vehicle make and model, timing belt replacement typically needs to occur every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. A timing belt replacement is labor-intensive and requires the expertise of car repair professionals. Rest assured, the team at both Hawker’s Automotive locations (Fort Collins & Loveland,)  has many years of experience to correctly replace the timing belts while also examining the health of other key engine parts like the water pump. If your mechanic notices anything potentially troublesome with the engine, we’ll get in touch and offer an honest solution.

It’s important to be aware of a timing belt’s typical lifespan, but drivers should also look out for other warning signs, such as oil leaks or irregular noises. Colorado’s dry climate also wears down timing belts more quickly, especially for people who drive infrequently.
