Timing Belt Replacement in Newport News, VA

Our Approach

A timing belt sounds innocent enough; after all, what kind of damage could a belt do? Quite a bit, actually. The timing belt is located inside the engine and is used to keep the crankshaft and camshaft timed together. If it breaks, the camshaft stops turning and the engine dies. Often, this also causes the piston and valves to make contact, with subsequent engine damage. So, if you don't want your engine to be reduced to a boat anchor, it's important to replace your timing belt.

EXPERIENCED AND FRIENDLY TECHNICIANS DEDICATED TO QUALITY

Our technicians have decades of experience replacing timing belts on vehicles of all makes and models. Timing belt replacement is a tedious job that requires exact precision. If the belt is installed improperly, severe engine damage can occur. That's why it's important to bring your car to the professionals at B&L.

Some vehicles have timing chains instead of belts. While chains don't require periodic replacement like belts, they do require occasional repair. If your vehicle needs timing chain replacement, we do that too.

THOROUGH INSPECTIONS FOR ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS

In most cases, it's impossible to tell if a timing belt is due for replacement through visual inspection. It is buried inside the engine, making it difficult to access. In addition, worn timing belts rarely show any signs of deterioration. Following the manufacturer's scheduled maintenance is the best way to decide if your belt is due for replacement. This information can be found in your owner's manual, or we'd be happy to look it up for you.
