Timing Belts & Timing Chains
Timing Belt Replacement for Bellevue Drivers
Replace your timing belt every 50K to 90K miles (check your owner's manual for specifics).
Replace If the belt is cracked or degraded at all
We replace tensioners, sprockets, and seals as well
We recommend replacing your water pump at the same time (even if it not leaking---it saves money)
Many cars have timing chains instead---rest assured we can repair your timing chain if you have a problem
If you already know the importance of your engine's timing belt and know it needs to be looked at or replaced, then Ali's Bellevue Auto Repair is the place for you! (call for an appointment now! - 425-450-9713)
We'll get your timing belt checked out and replaced as painlessly as possible. Our mechanics will get a good look and listen to your timing belt to make sure that it does need to be replaced. If we have to take important parts of your vehicle off, then we will be considerate enough to offer other preventative fixes while we are in there. It's the right thing to do.
(Also, if your car has a timing chain instead, we can help you if it breaks. There isn't usually any preventative maintenance on those.)
The idea behind the timing belt is pretty simple: If it breaks, then it will cost ten times the amount of simply replacing it when recommended. In fact, a broken timing belt could ruin your whole engine, and that will cost thousands of dollars to replace. Timing Belt replacement is a common service that simply NEEDS TO BE DONE, but only every 50,000 to 90,000 miles. It is a labor-intensive procedure, but well worth the cost of preventing a bigger issue.
Ali's provides timing belt---ANY belt---replacement and inspection that Bellevue area drivers can rely on. In fact, you should make sure your mechanic inspects all belts and hoses whenever you come in---we do! We handle hundreds of these a year, and we will take care of you and your car with the utmost respect!
