Why is it Important to Have my Timing Belt Changed? Common Service Questions at Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City

Answers to your service questions

In most modern cars, a single timing belt is responsible for synchronising all the components inside your engine. While timing belts are built to last, they will eventually need to be replaced. When a timing belt fails before it can be properly replaced, serious damage is likely to occure within the engine! Avoid this by scheduling all your regular maintenance with Carlsen Subaru according to the guidelines laid out in your Subaru owner's manual.

What Happens When the Timing Belt Fails on my Subaru?

Your engine is an impressive work of engineering with a variety of components that must work in perfect sync. That's where the timing belt comes in to connect the moving parts at the bottom engine with those at the top. If a timing belt fails, all those components will fall out of sync - including the pistons and valves responsible for creating combustion that powers your vehicle. When your pistons and valves are out of sync, they can interfere with one another, leading to a major mechanical failure that will stop your engine cold.
