Toyota Timing Belt Replacement near Bellingham


Toyota Timing Belt Replacement near Bellingham

Many Toyota vehicle owners do not realize that Toyota Timing Belt Replacement near Bellingham at Foothills Toyota is a critical service for their vehicles that they should not ignore. This is partly because prior to the breaking of the timing belt, your vehicle will not exhibit any signs or mechanical problems that will suggest a problem with the timing belt.

However, when the timing belt breaks, what follows will be disastrous. Your vehicle’s engine will go dead silent and will not budge.

Our Toyota Timing Belt Replacement Service

Your vehicle’s timing belt does the work of synchronizing the rotation of the camshaft and the crankshaft; it enables the engine's valves to open and close at the correct times during each cylinder's exhaust and intake strokes. It also prevents the pistons from striking the valves.

Therefore, when the timing belt wears out and breaks, your camshaft and crankshaft will no longer be in sync, and your engine’s pistons will strike the valves and cause serious engine damage. Fixing all this will be quite costly; you can save yourself all this trouble by scheduling Toyota timing belt maintenance for your vehicle according to manufacturer recommendations. We at Foothills Toyota welcome you to come to us for this service; we are quite experienced in Toyota timing belt replacements, and we guarantee full satisfaction in our services.

How We Perform a Toyota Timing Belt Replacement near Bellingham

When you bring your vehicle to Foothills Toyota for Toyota Timing Belt Replacement near Bellingham, our mechanics will take your vehicle to our state-of-the-art service center. They will start by disconnecting the negative battery cable; before doing so, they will advise you to ensure that you have your radio security code and a record of your preset radio stations. They will then remove the distributor cap. They will then use a wrench on the crankshaft bolt to rotate the engine until the timing mark on the engine’s crankshaft pulley is aligned with the 0° mark on the timing scale. Our mechanics will then determine whether or not the harmonic balancer pulley needs to be removed in order to remove the timing belt cover. They will then remove the screws or bolts that hold the timing belt cover, loosen the timing belt tensioner, and slide the timing belt off its sprockets. Our mechanics will then slide in a new timing belt, and methodically put all the engine components back in place as they were before.
