Volkswagen Timing Belt Replacement Service

Servicing VW Timing Belts In Columbus, OH

The timing belt is a big part of your car and does make a difference in how it drives and if it drives. Making sure that your timing belt is in good shape and that it is going to keep working can make a big difference. The timing belt keeps the car running and without it, your car is going nowhere.


What Is A Timing Belt?

The timing belt in a car attaches the crankshaft of your engine to the camshaft and helps to control the way that the pistons and valves open and close. The timing belt opens the vales when they need to and then closes them as well. When the timing belt is bad or has gone out, your car is likely not going to run or if it does run, it is going to run rough.

Signs Of A Bad Timing Belt

There are some signs that you can watch for if you believe that your timing belt might be going out. The first is a ticking noise from the engine. You might also notice that your engine will not turn over, your engine might misfire when it does finally start going, and you might also notice that there is oil leaking from the front part of your motor. The timing belt is an essential part of your car and when it does start to go your car is going to be in bad shape.

The timing belt is under a great deal of tension so when it does finally snap, it can cause damage to the rest of the engine and you do need to take the time to make sure that you are keeping your timing belt in good shape. Your technicians can look at your timing belt and see that there is damage or that it is dry rotting or cracking so that it can be swapped out before it has the chance to cause major damage.
