Timing Belt Replacement in Berkeley, CA

Argonaut Garage: Your New Timing Belt Replacement Shop!

“Timing is everything,” not only in life, but also within your engine. While many newer vehicles have made the switch to timing chains, to maintain the complex ballet of pistons and valves, there are still millions of vehicles on the road that use timing belts. With a limited lifespan, usually 90 to 100 thousand miles, this means you need a trusted place for timing belt replacements. In Berkeley, Argonaut Garage is that place— your timing belt replacement shop, no matter what you’re driving.
Over the past six years, our experienced technicians and appreciative customers have been growing in number. With a new name and new second location, the all-new Argonaut Garage in Berkeley, along with the former Kensington Service Station in Kensington, we can offer even more services to our loyal customers. The same great timing belt replacement service we offer in Kensington can now be found in Berkeley.

Professional Timing Belt Replacement When You Need It

No matter what you drive, whether a small hybrid, a large classic or a luxury SUV, regular maintenance and prompt timing belt replacements are critical. Most manufacturers recommend timing belt replacement around 90 or 100 thousand miles, because the engine can be damaged if it breaks. A stretched timing belt can cause the check engine light to illuminate, along with performance and fuel economy problems. A competent timing belt replacement shop can get the job done properly and get your car back on the road where it belongs.
Maintenance keeps your fluids fresh, while preventing damage to your engine, and the timing belt is similar. Replacing the timing belt on time, at the very least, will keep you from being stranded. At its worst, in interference engines, timely timing belt replacement will prevent collateral damage and spiraling engine repair costs. Argonaut Garage is equipped with the tools necessary to maintain your ride— right when you need it.
