To call your Toyota engine a complex ballet of moving parts would be an understatement. Every time you start your Toyota, you set that ballet in motion, idling around town or running high speed highways. To keep the dancers in sync, many Toyota engines use timing belts, which tend to last around 100,000 miles. Jay Wolfe Toyota of West County is the best place around St. Louis and Ballwin to Schedule a Toyota engine timing belt replacement service.
On Toyota vehicles equipped with timing belts, the timing belt is in the front of the engine, behind the drive belts, pulleys, accessories, and plastic or metal covers. In our state-of-the-art dealership Service Center, factory-trained technicians will remove your old timing belt and replace it with a new one. Along the way, your technician may suggest replacing other items, such as the water pump, camshaft or crankshaft seals, or idler or tensioner pulleys, which are difficult to access.
Toyota timing belts are constructed of several materials, including steel, Kevlar, polyester, neoprene, and nylon, giving them the flexibility and strength to coordinate crankshaft-to-camshaft timing. These materials last a long time, but there’s no telling when they might break after 90,000 miles or so. If the timing belt breaks, your engine will stop running. The best-case scenario is that it simply leaves you stranded. In the case of interference engines, the worst-case scenario is expensive engine damage.
The simplest reason why you should let Jay Wolfe Toyota replace your Toyota timing belt is because we know your Toyota best.
