Toyota Timing Belt Replacement Details

The rubber timing belt connects the camshaft to the crankshaft of the engine. This rubber belt wears and deteriorates over time, requiring replacement.

Common Symptoms:

  • Engine will stop running and internal engine damage can occur 
  • Belt may "jump time" (skipping a tooth or more, usually on the cam gear). This results in a loss of synchronization and engine performance.
  • Trouble codes from the camshaft or crankshaft sensors, causing Check Engine Light to illuminate
  • Slapping or scraping noises from engine

What the Mechanic Should Do:

  • The timing belt should be replaced at scheduled intervals, which vary among car manufacturers, but are usually every 60,000 to 90,000 miles. Having it serviced at these intervals will help reduce the chance of any related drivability concerns.
  • To replace the timing belt, the technician will remove the drive/fan belts (these should be inspected and replaced as necessary), pulleys, crankshaft pulley, and timing covers. He or she will also inspect components inside the timing cover and, if necessary, replace oil seals, tensioners, and idler pulleys. On certain engines, a water pump replacement and/or valve adjustment should be done at the same time as the timing belt service.

Honest trumps all. ASC told me exactly what was wrong, as well as things that could have been taken care of at that time. But they also explained that the recommended service was not imperative and could wait.

Excellent service, I wouldn't go anywhere else.

We have used ASC for the past six years and would highly recommend them. Very trustworthy and they won't try to make unnecessary repairs. They give you an honest assessment as to what items need to be addressed and what you can live with or defer until later if desired. And they are always cheaper than the local BMW dealer.

by - Verified Customer April 04, 2016

I have been a customer for 15 years. The mechanics are top notch. The charges for repairs are very reasonable.

by - Verified Customer March 03, 2016

Even though we still haven't figured out exactly what's wrong with the car and why it won't pass inspection, you guys are fairly priced and refuse to do work that isn't needed just to get the bill higher.

I took my car to them twice. I bought the parts they told me I needed and my car still doesn't work. The first time they did the work it only lasted two days, then it broke down again. I had to have my car towed to them the second time. They said they had fixed the issue and that I wouldn't have anymore problems. Yet again, two days later my car broke down again. I will not be going back to that shop.

They were very helpful in getting my car fixed, they explained all the work they had to do on my car. I wouldn't say that they went above and beyond but they did a good job with getting it done on time and providing me information about what was going on.

by - Verified Customer August 07, 2014

I have never been dissatisfied with their work, they don't ever try to sell anything more than what is needed.
