Updated: Mar 4
Loose or worn timing belts will result in diminished Land Rover performance, affecting the vehicle's engines and other systems. This is something you want to avoid, no one wants their vehicle to conk out whether they're in the middle of the highway or off-roading in an 4x4 trail.
Land Rover timing belts or serpentine belts might seem like small components but they are important for the engine function of these SUVs. While they can last 50,000 miles or more, they will eventually experience wear and tear. So be sure to have your Land Rover timing belts replaced on schedule at the Independent Land Rover Complete Service Center in Glendale, Los Angeles, California.
Land Rover Timing Belt Replacement Keep Alternators, Air Conditioning, Power Steering, Water Pumps Functioning Well
Timing belts are how are engines power accessories such as alternators, air conditioning compressors, power steering pumps, water pumps, etc. The Land Rover's engine is connected to a crankshaft pulley that drives the timing belt, which winds around the aforementioned accessories.
To know if your Land Rover timing belt needs replacement, observe for signs such as:
Air conditioning becoming weak or no longer working
Squealing sounds from under the hood that means the belt is slipping or wobbling
Power loss due to the alternator failing to charge the battery
Power steering failure
Visible signs of wear on the belt
Land Rover engines need their timing belts in order to operate smoothly and properly as the belts link the crankshaft to the camshaft, which opens and closes valves. Rhythmic opening and closing of the valves and pistons lets air in and exhaust out with the right timing. If the belt deteriorates, these valves and pistons will no longer be synchronized and this can result in damage to the engine.
So if the timing belt deteriorates, multiple crucial Land Rover systems become ineffective. It is best to have Land Rover timing belts replaced before they reach the end of their lifespans.
