Combustion Choreography: Timing Belt Replacement at Superior Auto Care in CAPE CORAL

Posted November 15, 2020 12:16 PM

Have you ever seen a ballet performance? Have you wondered how all of those dancers manage to travel all over the stage jumping and twirling and never crash into each other? That's the job of a choreographer.

Our auto engines are also highly choreographed. Pistons travel up and down inside cylinders. Valves at the tops of the cylinders open to let air and fuel in or exhaust out. These valves have to open and close at precisely the right time or the engine will run poorly if at all. The movement of the valves and pistons must be in harmony with each other. This choreography is the job of the timing belt or timing chain.

Timing belts, or chains, rotate the shafts that control the opening and closing of the valves. Timing chains are metal and durable enough that they may never need to be replaced.

Most vehicles, however, use a timing belt. Timing belts are tough and flexible, and considering the work they do, they last a long time for CAPE CORAL auto owners . But they do wear out. If they break, the consequences for CAPE CORAL drivers can spell disaster.

No matter what kind of engine you have, a broken timing belt will cause the engine to shut down or will lead to major engine damage. But in some engines, the valves protrude down into the cylinders enough that if the timing belt breaks, the pistons can smash the valves, bending or breaking them. If the engine is spinning fast enough, the broken parts can then shred the cylinder head. This adds to thousands of dollars of engine damage.

The only way the damage can be avoided by CAPE CORAL auto owners is by replacing the timing belt on schedule. Most vehicle manufacturers recommend replacing the timing belt at 60,000 miles (100,000 kilometers), but others can go as long as 90,000 or 100,000 miles (145,000 to 160,000 kilometers). Check the schedule for preventive maintenance in your owner's manual. If you're due or overdue for a timing belt replacement, don't put it off. Get it done now at Superior Auto Care in CAPE CORAL.

Your friendly and knowledgeable Superior Auto Care technicians probably aren't great dancers, but they can offer you some great auto advice on how to keep your engine properly choreographed. Don't hesitate to consult them about replacing your timing belt or any other car care concerns you may have.

    I was on vacation & my truck started running funny. One of the locals recommended this shop so I gave them a try & I was very pleased. It ended up only being a fuel filter & I'm thankful they got me in & out fast for a very responsible price. Great shop I highly recommend.

    Dan just did an oil change for my daughters Prius. He was quick and the service was excellent. He even has coffee in the lobby while we waited. Great job at a fair price. Thank you

    Just dropped in to D & S Auto today to get my oil changed. Dan did an excellent job. He also told me what needed to be done now and what could wait. I really appreciate someone with this kind of honesty. Thank you Dan. I'll be back.
