Your vehicle’s timing belt is exceptionally durable and can take many years of use, however it will have general wear and tear that will result in it needing to be replaced.
Most vehicles will need to have their timing belt changed between 60,000-120,000 miles, but the exact figure can be found in your car’s manual.
If you’re planning a long journey, it’s a good idea to check that you’re not going to go over the advised mileage before your next timing belt change.
You might be close to this figure already; in which case it would be better to have it changed before you begin your journey – to avoid running into any problems.
Our highly trained mechanics at CJ Auto Service are ready to meet all your timing belt requirements, whether it needs repairing or replacing altogether.
