Honda®, Toyota®, Lexus® & Acura® Timing Belt Replacement in Raleigh & Cary, NC

The timing belt in your car functions to join your engine’s crankshaft and camshaft, syncing their operation and allowing the complex valve system to open, close and open many times over.

Tao Auto has specialized in timing belt replacement in the Raleigh-area since 1986 — our car technicians can skillfully remove your old belt and install a new one properly.

When to Change Your Car’s Timing Belt

At Tao Auto, because of the variation between makes and models, our ASE®-certified mechanics recommend consulting your vehicle’s owner’s manual before deciding to replace your timing belt.

We often get asked by Raleigh-area customers who are thinking of replacing their timing belt if we can inspect it to see if it needs to be removed. Unfortunately, timing belts can work perfectly right up until the moment they decide to malfunction — and the results of a bad timing belt can be disastrous.

If your car’s timing belt goes bad while the engine is running, you can expect to need some very serious auto repair work, even possible engine failure. Typically, and contrary to popular belief, most timing belts don’t snap; in most instances, the teeth used by the belt to grip gets worn down.

Don’t put your engine at risk and err on the side of caution — if you are nearing the mileage recommended by the manufacturer, let Tao Auto replace your timing belt ASAP!
