Timing Belt Repair Albuquerque

Timing belt repair or replacement is not an easy job for Albuquerque automobile owners. It’s not an automobile repair job that should be left in unskilled hands. Timing belts affect the longevity of your vehicle. If you hope to keep yours running smoothly for years to come, it’s important to pay attention to timing belt maintenance.

Signs of a malfunctioning timing belt

Timing belts synchronize the rotation system of your engine’s camshaft and crankshaft. Observant automobile owners can recognize the signs of a worn timing belt that needs to be replaced.

Difficulty starting happens because the failing timing belt can slip on the camshaft drive, causing the engine cylinder to open and close at the wrong times.

Engine misfires that sound like a repetitive clicking or ticking sound from inside your engine.

Small cracks throughout the timing belt are often one of the first signs that maintenance is needed.

Smoking after ignition is a surefire sign your timing belt is worn out. It happens because all the fuel isn’t properly consumed but is instead redirected to your exhaust system.

Voltage loss happens because the engine is out of sync, leading to a piston/cam collision that eventually causes engine failure.
