Replace Your Timing Belt Before It Breaks

When it comes to maintaining your vehicle, it is always best to take preventative measures and avoid most serious vehicle problems. Simple routine services like replacing your timing belt can save your entire engine while also saving you a fair amount of time and financial expense.

The reason your timing belt is so important is because it lets the camshaft and crankshaft in your engine operate in the right rhythm. If their timing is off, your engine will not function. A worn out timing belt can begin causing you engine trouble, and a broken belt can spell disaster.

You should read your owner's manual for the best recommendation for your vehicle, but a good rule of thumb would be to replace your timing belt for every 60,000 to 100,000 miles you drive. Our helpful service department staff here at Scott Peterson Motors Inc in Belle Fourche would be more than happy to look at your timing belt and determine if it should be replaced. Just give us a call to make your appointment.
