Why hire a Timing Belt Replacement service through Airtasker?

Although often overlooked, the timing belt plays a vital role in your car engine as it generally connects the bottom components to the top to keep the valves running. Once it breaks, the valves may hit the pistons and cause more severe damage. There are no specific signs that will tell you beforehand if your timing belt is about to fail, which is why it's essential to have them regularly checked.

If going to a repair shop takes too much of your time, you can always find a timing belt specialist near you through Airtasker! Let our Taskers assist you as they identify the issues and complete a thorough replacement job.

Top Timing Belt Replacement related questions

Technically, there are no clear signs that your timing belt is wearing out unless it has completely broken down. It's still best to include this when getting a regular car diagnostic check so a mechanic can take a closer look.
Your car manufacturer will specify the estimated mileage interval of when you should replace your timing belt. The mileage commonly ranges from 60,000 miles to 100,000 miles, although it might be longer for some modern cars.  
Replacements can take 2-3 hours of work, depending on the particular make and model of your car and engine parts. If you Tasker encounters a problem with your engine, the replacement might also take a little longer.

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!
