Although not all vehicles come with timing belts, many cars and SUVs with smaller engines usually will. The timing belt is sometimes called a “timing chain” and is designed to ensure that your engine runs in synch and that your cylinders each fire at the appropriate time. If your timing belt fails, then your engine will cease functioning. As a result, it is crucial to get a faulty timing belt checked over by a professional mechanic as quickly as possible.

The Common Signs of Timing Belt Problems
If you’re not a professional mechanic or auto enthusiast, you’re unlikely to know what a timing chain is, let alone what a faulty one looks like. So now we’re going to run down the main symptoms to watch out for. First of all, watch out for a consistent ticking noise coming from your engine, as this could indicate that something is afoot. Second, watch out for misfires in your engine; these will usually be indicated by a sign on the dashboard for most modern cars. Third, if you find that oil is leaking from in front of your motor, then this is also a telltale sign of trouble. Finally, if your car won’t start, it could also be due to this issue – but you probably know to call a mechanic at this stage! London’s Automotive can help to diagnose and repair the issue if you spot any of these common signs, with our garage possessing the state-of-the-art equipment and tools necessary to get your vehicle working again.
