What do Timing Belt Replacement services include?

Replacing a timing belt is commonly not recommended for a DIY job. It requires extensive technical skills, the right tools, and parts, and could also take several hours to complete. Fortunately, you can always hire a mechanic from Airtasker, so you won't have to drive to the repair shop and wait for ages to get the job done! Here's what to expect:

Purchase of New Timing Belt

The new timing belt must be compatible with your car's model and engine. When purchasing, refer to your manufacturer's manual or compare it to your old one. If you're unsure, you can have your Tasker bring a suitable timing belt for your vehicle. They know the best brands that guarantee long-lasting durability and resiliency at the best price.

Disconnect and remove necessary parts

Before starting, the negative battery terminal must be disconnected and secured away from its battery post. Some necessary parts will also be removed such as the serpentine belt, hoses, cooling fan, alternator, and valve cover assembly to gain direct access to the old timing belt. Once done, it will expose the old timing belt, as well as the camshaft and crankshaft.

Timing masks

Your Tasker must then locate the timing marks on the camshaft and crankshaft to ensure proper alignment. This step will come in handy later on during the reinstallation process. Any misalignments should be addressed immediately before placing a new belt to avoid causing further issues in the long run.

Removing the timing belt

The bolts and screws that are holding the timing belt cover will be undone to release the tension and let the belt slip off the crankshaft sprocket. The crankshaft pulley will be then detached while keeping the crankshaft sprocket intact. Once settled, your Tasker will finally remove the timing belt from the vehicle.

Installing the timing belt

The camshaft sprocket must be aligned with the marks on the cylinder head. After then, the new timing belt will be reassembled and positioned around the crankshaft sprocket. A tensioner tool will help apply pressure on the belt to prevent a replacement that is too tight or too loose.


After installing, your Tasker will reinstall all previously removed parts. Feel free to go on a test drive to make sure that everything is working as it should be. If there are no problems, it means the replacement was a success!

Timing belt & seal replacement (half done) < 1hr work


Randwick NSW, Australia

22nd Jan 2022

Need two seals + timing belt replacement on an '87 Volvo 240GL. Parts already purchased and provided. Everything is exposed and ready to go. I started repairs but do not have the right tool or time now for the final camshaft removal. I have removed the accessory belts, water pump (new one to go on) and crank shaft pulley ready to have a new seal and pulley put in place. The seal behind the timing belt is where I got stuck without an impact wrench. Old timing belt is still in place and old Volvo's aren't finicky with them, but you probably know that. Less than an hour's work. - Due date: Flexible

Timing Belt Replace, intake manifold gasket replaced on 1HZ engine


Paddington NSW 2021, Australia

4th Oct 2021

Hello, I have a Toyota Landcruiser with a 1HZ engine. I'm not sure when the timing belt was last replaced so for preventative maintenance I would like to get this done. There's also a slight oil leak coming out of my intake manifold, so I would also like to get this replaced. (I have the gasket and could also provide the timing belt). Preferably would like to get this done by a diesel mechanic or someone who is familiar with 1HZ engines. - Due date: Needs to be done on Saturday, 16th Oct 2021
