Not all timing belt services are created equal. Some shops just replace the belt, while others will replace the belt and tensioner. The fact is that this is just not enough to be considered a complete job.
Northwest Rally Sports replaces your timing belt, timing belt tensioner, all idler bearings, water pump, thermostat, and engine coolant with every timing belt service. Why do we do this? Your Subaru's timing belt's job is to keep valve timing in sync with the crank shaft. If that synchronization is lost, in most cases, very expensive engine damage will result. The timing belt achieves this monumental task by running over a series of bearings and gears. It also drives the engine's water pump and is put under tension by a hydraulic tensioner.
All of these items are considered to be wear items that must be replaced with your 105k service (aka: Timing Belt Service). We have years of experience replacing timing belts and their supporting components. Click here to contact us if your vehicle is coming up on its needed timing belt replacement.
