A Simple Explanation of Your Vehicle's Timing Belt

At Reynolds' Subaru, it is important to us to keep all of our customers informed about their vehicles. Your vehicle includes a timing belt that is vital for optimal engine performance. If your vehicle's timing belt snaps or malfunctions, it could cause the engine to shut down rapidly and lead to thousands of dollars in repairs. Find out more about your vehicle's timing belt below.

Your vehicle's timing belt is important because it helps the camshaft and crankshaft turn correctly. With most automobiles, the timing belt should be changed every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. However, it may need to be inspected sooner if you notice fraying or hear a shrieking sound coming from the engine. Our service technician may suggest that you have your water pump, pulleys, and tensioners changed in conjunction with your timing belt to enhance engine performance.

Should your vehicle need a routine service or repair, call our service center and schedule an appointment.
