If your car has suddenly stopped operating even while driving, the most likely culprit was a broken timing belt. Your vehicle's timing belt is an essential piece of equipment, helping the car's camshaft and crankshaft keep turning at a synchronized rate.

Unfortunately, timing belts don't last forever and need to be replaced every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Our service technicians at Love Mitsubishi in Cayce urge all of our customers to check the owner's manual for their vehicle to see the recommended service time for belt replacement. Because a broken timing belt can damage your car's engine and become quite costly, it's a smart idea to be proactive about getting the timing belt changed at our service department before anything catastrophic happens.

Our service technician may also recommend changing the tensioners, pulleys and water pump at the same time for maximum cost effectiveness. Pay attention to your timing belt replacement needs!
