San Diego Timing Belt Replacement

You can trust our auto mechanics to properly take care of your vehicle, from bumper to bumper. Our timing belt and timing chain service is backed by a nationwide 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. 

Your engine is filled with so many moving valves, opening and closing at specified times. It is your timing belt and timing chain’s job to make sure your engine’s valves open and close at the proper times.

The auto mechanics at Import Auto Specialists in San Diego want to keep you away from situations like these. We strive for the longevity and driveability of your vehicle, timing belts, and timing chains included.
