Timing Belt

The blog this week is about the timing belt on your Volvo or Toyota.
We have had many customers ask over the years ‘Do I really need to replace my timing belt during this service?’ Our answer is always yes! If it is
due to be replaced during that routine service then absolutely. It is always going to be cheaper to do the preventative maintenance than the reactive
maintenance when it snaps! They are now done on miles and age so just because you have only covered say 60,000 miles over 10 years does not mean that
it should not be replaced because you haven’t covered say the 108,000 miles – at the end of the day it is a piece of rubber which will break down and
deteriorate just like your wiper blades do!

The timing belt can snap without warning, do not take that risk! So what will happen if your timing belt snaps? The valves will hit the pistons, which
will cause them to bend and result in damage to the cylinder head and camshaft. This could result in you requiring a total engine replacement on your
Volvo or Toyota or the end of your car! Can you afford to replace your engine or buy a new car? This would run into thousands of pounds. Don’t be foolhardy
and think it wont happen to me! Replace it on time when it is due!
