AGCO Auto has as great article, When Should I Replace My Timing Belt?
At MY Automotive we have a lot of questions and concerns about timing belts, sounds, smells, and what a customer needs to do to fix their issues.
A Timing Belt and a Serpentine Belt are Not the Same Thing.
Some vehicles also have exterior belts and serpentine belts. Sometimes these are confused and think replacing the outside belts is the same as the timing belt. The timing belt is inside the motor. If your vehicle is older than seven years, check to see if it has a timing belt. If so, make sure the timing belt has been replaced. Often times, this can save your motor.
When in doubt, Contact MY Automotive.
