Essentially, timing belts keep your engine components in sync by synchronizing the camshaft, pistons, valves, and other components.  Typically constructed of rubber or other tough fabric, normal wear and tear can result in cracks and other damage.  It’s important that you have your timing belt maintained regularly so that potential engine problems can be avoided.  Our highly trained and qualified technicians specialize in timing belt and timing chain replacement, offering you the assurance and peace of mind you desire when on the road.

At Michael’s Auto Center of North Bend, we have enjoyed great success as the “go-to” service/repair center for more than 30 years.  We know the catastrophe that can result from failing to have your timing belt or chain replaced on a car, truck, SUV, or other vehicle.  Ultimately, without having the issue addressed quickly you could face costly engine failure.  In most cases, the belt won’t actually break, but will sustain damage due to stripping of the “teeth” on the belt, which causes slippage of the drive gear.

There are a few symptoms or signs that your timing belt may not be working properly.  These include:

Visual damage.  It’s fairly easy to see whether the belt or chain is clean and in good repair, or has spots of coolant or oil that can indicate wear.

Difficult time starting the engine.  When it’s time for timing belt replacement, you may have a difficult time starting your vehicle.  If the engine catches only after repeated attempts to start it, it could be the belt/chain.

High-pitched noise.  Hearing a high-pitched whirring sound or noise that you would equate to shrieking?  If you hear these types of noises upon starting the engine, it could indicate damage.

Regardless of the symptoms, our professional technicians have more than 15 years of experience and are dedicated to exceptional service and repair.  We will evaluate the situation and diagnose the problem prior to ever performing any work on your vehicle.  Our prices are fair as well, as we believe in an honest approach with every customer.
