Engine Timing Belt

New Timing Belt

There are several ways your car will tell you when you are going to need engine timing belt replacement service work done. The belt is made of rubber and it naturally deteriorates over time. When it deteriorates, the belt will start to crack and break apart. When this happens, you will often hear “ticking” sounds coming from the engine, the engine will start to misfire, and you will usually find oil puddles under the front of your Chevrolet. If the belt breaks, you will not be able to start your car as the engine will not turn over. You want to make sure your engine’s timing belt never reaches this level of dysfunction as the damage can get so extensive that your engine will become useless and need to be replaced. For timing belt servicing and repair work in the Plattsmouth, Nebraska, area, you should come to Gregg Young Chevrolet service center in Plattsmouth to get everything checked out.

Engine Timing Belt Service Explained

The process for checking the timing belt can be extensive and special tools and training are necessary to perform the work right. The first thing that has to be done is to gain access to the belt. This is done by removing the air-box and hoses as well as the wheel well cover. The timing belt cover then has to be removed. The pulley used to spin the belt around also has to be removed to allow the old belt to be removed and to properly put the new one back in its space.

Benefits of Service

Once the new belt is in place, the marks on the crank heads need to be precisely lined up with marks on the engine body. Lining up the timing belt marks correctly is extremely important. The marks ensure the pistons in the cylinders are lined up properly in order for them to work together in unison. If the marks are not lined up properly, the engine will not turn over. Other work performed in conjunction with replacing a timing belt is to inspect the parts connected to it. The water pump is typically removed to check for leaks and the tension pulley is checked to make sure it is working well.
