Is Your Timing Belt Acting Up?

Have you ever heard a shrieking noise from underneath the hood of your vehicle? If you have, you probably soon found out that your timing belt either needed to be tightened or replaced. When you hear that high-pitched sound, it's almost tempting to just get rid of the belt. Not really, but we all know it's a frustrating sound, and you might not know exactly what a timing belt does.

The timing belt is responsible for synchronizing the camshaft and the crankshaft so that the vehicle can run. If the timing belt breaks, your vehicle will no longer move, and your engine might even be damaged.

If you've recently begun to hear that high-pitched whining sound, come to our service center at Gillman Honda San Benito. We're conveniently located at 1801 Industrial Way and would be happy to assess if your timing belt needs to be replaced or just tightened. We'll even work with you to identify any other maintenance issues that could affect your engine, so don’t delay!
