It is not uncommon today for owners who follow good auto maintenance to get 150,000 to 250,000 miles on their cars! Plus every time we change your oil we do a safety inspection on your vehicle.

Timing chain engines use a metal chain rather than a rubber belt similar to a chain on a bicycle. Timing chain engines do not have a recommended replacement interval and generally will last the life of the engine or will start making a lot of noise before breaking. Timing belt engines do have a recommended replacement interval set by the manufacture generally between 90,000-105,000 mile intervals or every 8-10 year. We recently had a customers vehicle towed in for stalling while driving. The vehicle would not restart, engine cranks over but will not start and run. The customer explained that her mechanic neighbor friend replaced the timing belt over the weekend car ran beautifully all week until stalling and now won’t restart. Fast ... read more
