As a kid, a strange noise coming from under the bed may have prompted you to bury yourself under the covers to protect you from the monster that was believed to be lying beneath your bedposts. As an adult, however, it isn’t safe to ignore the sounds that are coming from under the hood of your car.

If left untreated, the problems your car is facing could lead to catastrophic results. The timing belt, for example, could seriously damage your engine if it breaks. Mercedes-Benz Maintenance Services in Tacoma can help you stay safely on the road so you can continue enjoying your car for many more years.

Don’t Put Your Safety at Risk

Whether you used to sneak out past your curfew or if you waited until the last minute to write a paper that was due, we’ve all taken risks in our life. It isn’t worth it to put your life at risk on the road, however. At Mercedes-Benz of Tacoma, our technicians will recommend that you replace your timing belt after you’ve driven 60,000 miles or after four years of use.

Every car is different, and that is why we also recommend that you check the owner’s manual to see when the manufacturer recommends you receive maintenance.

Although the timing belt appears to be an insignificant player under the hood, don’t let this synthetic part fool you. Imagine that the engine of your car is a cake, and all the individual parts are elements of the recipe. In order to fully enjoy your dessert, all of the necessary ingredients must be combined. If you were to leave out the cake batter (timing belt), the final product would be useless. This is what could be expected if you let the timing belt wear down and break.
