Belts are critical components to proper engine and accessory operation. Timing belts ensure proper alignment of vital engine components. Accessory belts, depending on the make of your vehicle, operate vital system components. Because of the hostile environment caused by stress and heat, belts should be inspected regularly for wear.

Have accessory belts inspected by a certified professional at every oil change.
Squealing noises should be checked immediately.
Timing belt should be replaced according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
Most common recommended timing belt replacement intervals are 60,000 and 90,000 miles.
