  • Automotive Tips from The Muffler Doctor: Knowing When Your Timing Belt Should Be Replaced

    Sunday 22 April 2018

    The timing belt in your engine controls the opening and closing of the intake and exhaust valves. KANSAS CITY drivers need to replace it on a schedule to avoid failure.

    Timing belts are very difficult to get to, requiring quite a bit of labor to access. Timing belt replacement is one of the more expensive maintenance services, but the cost at The Muffler Doctor to correct an engine damaged by a broken timing belt is much, much more.

    The timing belt has a tensioner to help maintain proper belt tension. The tensioner should be replaced along with the timing belt and any idler pulleys at the vehicle manufacturer’s specified service interval. Your The Muffler Doctor service advisor can help you with the timing belt.
