What is a timing component kit?
A timing kit includes 2 tensioners and an idler pulley. There are also kits which include a timing belt. The tensioners and idler pulley are made with durable steel brackets, double-slip seals and bearings with formulated lubricants. This kit helps reduce vibration and it also prevents premature belt wear. They are specially made to fit and meet the exact specifications of the OE parts being replaced. What is more, the contents of the kit are individually packaged in plastic bags. You can easily identify and compare the kit items to the original parts without damaging any part of the kit. Complete installation instructions are included in the kit and these instructions are available in English, Spanish and French.
How does a timing component kit work?
Most people who have cars invest a lot of time, money and effort for maintenance. With prices steadily increasing, people have chosen to do check-ups and car maintenance themselves to save money. Moreover, owners can fix their vehicles within their own homes. Drivers gain more knowledge on car parts, techniques and maintenance as they become mechanics.
Why replace a timing component kit?
A broken timing component kit can cause various transmission problems. Dislodged gears, and a misplaced timing belt can even damage some parts of your internal combustion engine. Avoid this by regularly checking on your timing component kit-make sure to look for loose bolts, leaks, and screws so as to prevent additional repair costs.
Ignoring a broken timing component kit would not be a viable option as it can cost you more maintenance and repair fees in the long run. If you think your timing component kit is broken, make sure to replace it right away, and get the tensioner properly calibrated by a professional mechanic.
