Timing Belt Replacement


A timing belt’s function is to control the timing of the engine valves. The timing belt, also known as the cam belt, is the most common used today and replaces the older timing chain. However, there are still some vehicles today that utilize a timing chain. At Atascadero and Paso Robles Auto Repair Shop, we have experience with all makes and models of cars and trucks from almost every year – so whether you have a timing belt or even a chain, we can help with any issues you might be having.

The timing belt connects the crankshaft to the camshaft(s), which in turn controls the opening and closing of the engine valves. Additionally, the timing belt may drive other engine parts such as the water pump. While the serpentine belt in the car is typically easily visible, the timing belt / chain typically has a cover of some sort that must be removed for replacement or inspection. That means it isn’t always as easy as lifting the hood and seeing what the problem is when your timing belt is having problems. But it’s no problem at Atascadero and Paso Robles Auto Repair Shop because we perform a complete diagnostic check to find exactly where the problem is.
