Timing Belt and Timing Chain Replacement

Louisville Timing Belt Replacement

Body: Located near the front of your engine, your car's timing belt is a round piece of rubber that connects the camshaft to the crankshaft. Its job is to ensure the pistons, cam, valves, and water pump work in perfect timing. When your belt breaks, these systems lock up and can result in bent valves, damaged pistons, and major repair costs.

Warning Signs:

  • You can feel that the timing belt is stretched, tight, dry, cracked, nicked, or can see that some of its teeth are missing
  • The belt has never been changed and your vehicle has over 90,000 miles on it
  • Your vehicle is hard to start
  • When you come to a stop or put your car in park, you experience a rough idle

Replacing the timing belt is not a job for an amateur mechanic or your neighbor. Generally speaking, they are inaccessible without removing other parts and systems (like the water pump and distributor). A Barnes technician will know the proper procedure for your vehicle's make and model; will precisely match your new belt to your existing one; and will synchronize the camshaft and timing of your vehicle's system.

To prevent damage to your engine or an unexpected breakdown, "Bring it to Barnes" and let our team of master mechanics inspect your belt. Note, we follow the original equipment manufacturers' recommendations of a full-service inspection between 60,000-90,000 miles.

While completing this work, your mechanic will perform a deeper inspection and may suggest replacing the water pump, thermostat, seals, spark plugs, or plug wires - depending on your vehicle's age and its overall health. This will prevent future headaches and major expenses down the road. (Many of our customers take advantage of doing a few different things at once to save on the costs of labor.)

We invite you to either "Bring it to Barnes" or call us at 502-966-8644 to discuss replacing your timing belt today. Rest assured, you will leave our shop with a more reliable, safer, and better-performing vehicle.

This is Kenneth Brown I had a problem with my 2006 Ford Expedition the engine would cut off while I was driving in traffic. No one could find the problem, I called Barnes Repair and explained problem. On 04/16/20 Barnes found co sensor had melted on exhaust but they did not stop there they found several other things wrong. They kept in touch every step of the way of repair. They repaired my wiring harness and brakes. After I got my vehicle back they even called me to make sure every thing was ok. I would recommend every one if you have a problem with your vehicle get in touch with Barnes Auto Repair 5029668644 they will make sure your vehicle will be in top shape when you get it back. THANKS TO ALL THE STAFF AND TECHS
