Timing Belt Replacement in Townsend, DE

Your Best Choice for Timing Belt Replacement

Your timing belt is a critical piece of your engine’s puzzle. It synchronizes the crankshaft in the lower part of the engine with the camshafts in the upper end. The toothed timing belt is precisely installed to make your engine timing accurate. If the belt skips a tooth, or if the timing belt breaks, this could spell catastrophe for your engine. At a minimum, your engine will run poorly.

Over time, the timing belt wears down just like other rubber components. It eventually needs to be replaced, typically every 50,000 to 70,000 miles. Timing belt replacement will keep your engine running strong.
