Your timing belt is the most important maintenance item in your engine. Think of your timing belt as the conductor of the complex mechanical “orchestra” that is your car’s engine. If things don’t happen just at the right time, the whole piece is thrown off.
There are two types of engines that use timing belts. They are described as: “Interference Engines” and “Non-interference Engines” The difference lies in the proximity between the valves and the pistons. On an interference engine, if the timing belt slips even one notch, the piston can crash into an open valve causing serious engine damage by bending valves and breaking pistons. Non-interference engines will usually not self destruct, but in either case if the belt fails, the engine will immediately shut down leaving you stranded.
We perform factory-scheduled maintenance, such as oil changes, tune-ups, and more extensive repairs such as chassis and electrical, to keep your VW running in top condition.
