Early Warning Signs of a Damaged Timing Belt

Your engine’s timing belt synchronizes the crankshaft and camshaft so that the engine runs smoothly. When a timing belt is damaged or loose, it could wreak havoc on the engine block and cause serious damage within a short period of time. That is why you must keep an eye out for any early warning signs that your timing belt might need to be replaced in the near future.

You should immediately contact our service team in Falmouth, ME if you ever notice any unusual noises coming from the engine. If the timing belt is damaged, then you might hear a clicking or thumping noise whenever you rev the engine. A damaged timing belt can also result in an oil leak, and that is one of the reasons why you should check for puddles under your vehicle once every few weeks.

Please stop by Morong Falmouth Audi today if you believe that your timing belt is ready to be replaced.
