There are DIY service projects, and then there are timing belt services. Some services we provide can be done at home given the person has a full understanding of what they are doing to not compromise their safety, that of their passengers and other drivers and the health of their car. Then, there are other services like replacing a timing belt that should be left to a professional due to its sensitive nature.
The timing belt is a critical component that allows the crankshaft to drive the camshaft - this is what opens and closes the valves for the engine to run.
What to look out for?
Because this part is so critical to the overall health and performance of your vehicle, we highly recommend to not wait to get it changed when our certified technicians suggest that it needs maintenance. The timing belt on Hondas manufactured after 1997 need to be changed about every 105k miles. Most other car manufacturers require their belts to be changed nearly twice as often.
Avoiding a timing belt replacement will often result in complete engine failure and other more costly repairs.
Our team of certified technicians at Roy Schmidt Honda are here to make sure your vehicle is getting the best service possible. While we check your timing belt, we also do a complimentary, full multi-point inspection before getting you back on the road. By using only genuine OEM Honda parts made for your specific Honda model, we are helping your vehicle reach original factory condition and a lifetime of miles.
