Our expert insights into free timing belt check

Our expert insights into free timing belt check

What is included in a timing belt check?

A timing belt check will involve a thorough inspection of the timing belt and its related components. These checks are particularly important to carry out on belts that are over 4 or 5 years old - because the timing belt is made of rubber, it will wear down over time and eventually break.

How do I know if my timing belt needs replacing?

Some common signs that your timing belt may need replacing are:

  • Engine is making a ticking noise
  • Engine struggles or fails to turn over
  • Rough engine idle
  • Engine misfires frequently
  • Drop in oil pressure or an oil leak

    Really simple to use. Very polite man Shahed Shay collected the car. Fully photographed on collection and delivery. Had exactly done what I requested no fake additions to the job or charges. So felt confident to use them again for my MOT and service.
