Timing Chain Replacement in Albany CA

Timing belts need replacement, but timing chains?! Unfortunately they do. While timing chains typically last much longer than timing belts, a timing chain may require a replacement. The typical reason for replacement is that the timing chain has stretched and can no longer provide proper timing for the camshaft and the crankshaft. Some vehicles, in particular Audi, are known to suffer from stretched timing chains.

Honda Timing Belt Replacement in Albany, CA

Even though most late model vehicles come with timing chains now, there are still millions of Honda vehicles that are equipped with a timing belt. Typically, your Honda will need to have its timing belt replaced every 90,000 to 105,000 miles – the exact interval can be found in your Owner’s Manual. Timing belt failure can have very expensive consequences, so we highly recommend following Honda’s replacement schedule.   When we replace the timing belt, we also look at pulleys and tensioners and replace them as well.
