Timing Belt Replacement, Rochester MN

Are you looking for “timing belt replacement” in Rochester, MN? In the case of this timing belt, the customer was lucky – the vehicle died and would not run. If the timing belt would have broken while driving, chances are, it would have caused major engine damage.


Over time, “timing belts” wear. The rate at which they wear is based on many factors including extreme weather conditions like what we experience in Rochester, MN. The cold and heat extremes affect the rubber material – causing problems. It is known that the timing belt is only good for so long – this is why timing belt replacement is recommended by your manufacturer at specific intervals as part of your scheduled maintenance—so they can be replaced before problems occur.


But what if you just leave it alone and replace the “timing belt” when it breaks? Is timing belt replacement necessary at the intervals recommended by your manufacturer? The answer is absolutely yes! If your timing belt fails, for any reason the result is likely major engine damage. The cost of repairing or replacing your engine far exceeds the “cost of timing belt replacement”.


You might wonder, “how much is a timing belt”. Just as with any mechanical service, this depends on the make and model of your vehicle, the difficulty and time associated with replacing it and of course, the quality of the part used to “replace the timing belt”.

Words from our clients:

Customer service was great and follow up details about my vehicle while it was in the shop were very helpful. Emails with attached pictures and details was a first for me and the shop contacted me regarding services needed rather than just fixing it and charging me. I knew everything going on from drop off until pickup. The shuttle service was also very helpful!
