Replacement of EngINE TIMING BELT
Replacing the timing belt in your prestige auto is a necessary service that all vehicles require during their lifetime. Putting this service off or ignoring the warning signs of a faulty timing belt can lead to catastrophic consequences for your much loved car.
Why Replace Your Timing Belt?
An engine’s timing belt maintains the synchronicity of the reciprocating parts and requires replacement within the manufactures designated intervals. Failure to comply with these intervals can result in catastrophic engine damage by means of piston to valve contact. This contact, even very slight contact, will almost always bend the valve stem, and in a worst case scenario it will damage or punch a hole in the piston crown.
If the valve stems are bent, and it will mean the cylinder head will need to be removed and reconditioned and re-assembled with new gaskets and seals. If the piston crowns are damaged beyond repair a full engine rebuild will be required.
Engine code specific locking tool sets are required for each engine to lock the camshafts and the crankshafts into their correct positions. Once these positions have been established the replacement procedure begins, maintaining the exact factory settings for engine timing. At Pace Auto Werks we have invested seriously in building our timing tool sets to cover all the models we service, so there will be no delays with the replacement of your timing belt.
Why Choose Pace Auto Werks?
At Pace Auto Werks we have invested seriously in building our timing tool sets to cover all the models we service, so there will be no delays with the replacement of your timing belt.
Pace Auto Werks insists on adhering to these intervals and will only use quality OEM or genuine replacement components for this procedure, being the toothed belt, the tensioner roller and the idler roller, and usually water pump and auxiliary drive belt, regardless of their condition at that time.
For example, Audi requires that these components are replaced every 4 years or 90,000 kilometres, whichever comes first with no exceptions. Due to the difficult proximity of the auxiliary drive belt, which needs to be removed to replace the timing belt components, we will almost always replace this as part of the procedure.
The cost to perform this procedure varies from make to make and model to model and is available upon request with all the vehicle details including the chassis number.
