When do you need a timing belt kit? Take a good look at your odometer. What does it say? If it reads anywhere near 100,000 kilometers, or 60,000 miles, it's high time for a timing belt replacement. If it has gone past that mark, you're in heaps of trouble. You can bet your bottom dollar that the next problem you'll encounter while driving is a broken timing belt, along with bent valves and damaged pistons. Leave your timing belt to rot and you are looking at a very expensive repair bill that could have been completely avoided if you took the necessary steps.
So, do you have any idea how to install a timing kit? It's quite technical. If you're no good with hand tools, this DIY job may be too tough for you. Better leave it to the professionals. The last thing you want is to harm a perfectly working engine while toying around with it. Once this happens there is little left for you to do but purchase a replacement car timing belt kit. Even worse, you might have to eventually go to a mechanic to fix the damage you tried to fix!
Checking your car manual is the very first thing you need to do if you plan on installing timing belt kits anytime soon. This is boring, that is true, but what other option do you have? Actually, there is another option. Go online and look for a forum which specializes in your car's specific make, model and year. In here you can talk to mechanics and other owners of the same car you have and talk directly to them about any car problem you have! The great thing about forums is that you get to figure out the specific problems your specific car encounters from car owners themselves. And of course they will be more than willing to help you with your t-belt.
There are many reasons to switch to DIY moves instead of relying on mechanics. First is the cost. Since everything seems to be more expensive now than ever before, getting to save even just a few bucks is a huge thing. Second, if you are the curious type, tinkering around with such an important machine would be a treat. And especially the job you are planning on doing, installing a timing belt kit in your car would definitely tickle your brain.
