Timingbelt & Waterpump
A Professional Quality Service
A diesel engine does not work like a gasoline engine, for instance. Some wear items like the clutch are hidden or, sometimes they have long service intervals that owners can forget about them. That is until something goes wrong. One of these is the timing belt. And, oftentimes, when you go to replace it, it is recommended that you replace the water pump too. Timing belt chain is made of metal, which lasts longer. Regardless, at some point, due to stretching and wear, they’ll have to be replaced- typically, for a timing belt, that is after 60,000-100,000 miles. Not only does it keep the crankshaft and camshaft(s) synced, it sometimes also drives the water pump. Usually, replacing the water pump and timing belt together is a good idea. For one, the water pump’s lifespan is typically 60,000-100,000 miles. And if the timing belt fails, whether due to simple age, or the failure of a tension pulley or bearing, the water pump will likely fail along with it. Ideally, you can’t get at the water pump without first exposing the timing belt. So, if you’re already changing the belt, it’s very little added work to replace the pump at the same time.
There are some signs that the timing belt is on its way out. Your engine will misfire, or fail to turn on at all. This might be preceded by a ticking noise coming from the engine bay. In addition, the gasket separating the timing cover and engine block may fail over time, causing oil to leak out.
