Timing Belt Replacement

Take your car to Z’s Car Care for prompt timing belt replacement and engine care.

Providing Car Repairs for Over 35 Years

The timing belt ensures the proper timing of the engine’s valves and pistons. It works by turning and synchronizing the crankshafts and camshafts, ensuring your engine works in time with the pistons.

Over time, timing belts can wear out, break, or loosen, which cause damage to the engine. Once you experience exhaust issues, notice an oil leak near your motor, or have problems turning your engine over, it’s time to have your timing belt replaced.

Z’s Car Care will replace your timing belt on time, and with quality parts. We offer belts from reputable manufacturers such as Gates, Contitech, Dayco, and more. Our master technicians also have over 20 years of experience who ensure prompt and polished services.

When To Replace Timing Belt or Chain

Most vehicles require timing belt replacement at 100,000 miles, but the general rule is to check the recommended interval from your car’s owner’s manual. The interval varies by manufacturer, ranging from 60,000 to 120,000 miles, depending on the vehicle’s make, model, and engine type.

Aside from this recommended schedule, it’s important to note that timing belts can fail prematurely due to factors such as exposure to high temperatures, oil contamination, and harsh driving conditions.

To ensure that your timing belt is in top shape, look out for the following warning signs that it’s time to get a new one:

  • Difficulty starting the engine
  • Engine misfires or runs roughly
  • Squealing noise from the engine
  • Vibrations or shaking while the engine is running
  • Poor engine performance, including reduced power and acceleration
  • Visible signs of wear or damage, such as cracking or fraying

I really like this business. It was easy to schedule an appointment and my car was ready faster than expected. The guys are really friendly and always do a nice job. They never try to sell me a bunch of work my car doesn’t need.

Z’s is under new ownership but the excellent quality I had before is still in full swing. They diagnosed my vehicle problem and found the right parts and fixed it all with less than a 24 hour turnaround. No easy feat considering the vehicle is 27 years old.

The best car care we’ve ever received! We have taken two of our cars in to Z’s, one for a repair and the other for troubleshooting. Customer care was incredible! They quickly and very reasonably fixed our first car (while communicating with us throughout the day) and assisted us with figuring out the issue with our second car at no charge. We won’t be taking our cars anywhere else!

We have only used Zs as our mechanic for all of our vehicles since our first cars back in the 80's. These guys really know there stuff, and we are always quite satisfied with their service and thriftiness. Great service and fair prices. Wouldn't even consider anyone else to work on our cars. Thank you Delbert! 🙂

My family and I have been taking our vehicles to Z's Car Care for 21 yrs now. Everything from a 1964 Ford Pickup to a 2014 Honda Civic Coupe, and they have always been able to handle whatever problem it has been. Knowledgeable, very well priced and beyond both of these trust worthy. And the staff and owners are an absolute joy to work with, a repair shop you can always count on.

I depend on Z's for all my car care needs. They do great work and keep careful records, so if you can't remember the last time you had a brake job, they can look it up for you. Also, if a part they sell fails while still under warranty, they will tell you that, too. I simply won't let anybody else touch my car.

I've been a customer of Z's for well over 10 years and everything I have taken there has been explained thoroughly and repaired correctly. The few times in which parts that have been replaced that don't work properly, Delbert and team stand by their work and repair or replace on warranty, free of charge. Z's is really the only place you want to take any of your vehicles. Honest assessments and repair... And they stand behind it all.

Very prompt, professional, thorough and honest. That's probably the best combination one wants in looking for a car repair/service company. My wife and I had a pre-purchase inspection done with them and we were well pleased. We purchased the vehicle.

Absolutely the best customer service I've received in more years than I can remember. Sent step-sons truck there to get ready for the drive to his next duty station, after 3yrs on Okinawa. Gave a great discount for his military service, plus delivered back to my house, since I'd had surgery and was not able to drive it. Truly wonderful people and great mechanics.
