What is replaced with a timing belt?
When replacing your vehicle’s timing belt, you replace a pile of parts. If the job is done correctly, the entire kit is done. Many vehicle’s have the water pump driven by the timing belt. If this is the case on your vehicle, we replace the water pump as well. The water pump is a wear item and is likely to leak before the timing belt breaks.
Along with the pump and belt, The tensioner and idlers are crucial in this repair process. These items rotate in circles as your belt spins. These items are bearings or have bearing in them. If you do not replaced these and one freezes in place, your timing belt may snap or be thrown off track.
Seals are another part that you do not want to skip. cam seals, crank seals and balancer shaft seal all must be replaced when doing the component kit replacement. If these seal are not done, you risk the chance of oil leaking on the timing belt and causing pre-mature failure, causing the timing belt to fail. Another rare thing that may happen is manifold vacuum leaks. BMW and other vehicles love to create vacuum leaks and send you on a huge circle of diagnostic time.
