What is that mysterious ticking noise? No, it is not the Harry Potter Puppet Pals from that YouTube video that we have all come to love (proceeding to head over to YouTube to listen to it for the tenth time today). If that mysterious ticking noise is coming from your vehicle, that may be a problem. While this might be a personality quirk for some vehicles (especially Subarus), a mysterious ticking noise can be a sign of trouble ranging from an inadequate amount of oil to an out of line piston in one of the engine cylinders. Or it might even be a failing timing belt.
A timing belt helps rotate the crankshaft and camshafts of your engine so its valves will open and close at the proper times. In the simplest terms, the timing belt helps your engine run and if it goes kaput, you will no longer be able to drive and your savings account will take a huge hit because an engine repair like this is REALLY EXPENSIVE! Before your engine fails, bring your vehicle to us here at Auction Direct USA. In addition to offering a huge selection of high-quality used vehicles, we are here to help you take care of your current model thanks to our in-house service centers at our Raleigh and Rochester locations, where we have all the tools needed to get the job done.
Engine work is always complicated and typically should not be handled by a weekend mechanic. Our technicians are specially trained to know the structure of a variety of models from numerous domestic and foreign brands so they can switch out that failing timing belt and make repairs to any other damages that occurred when the timing belt failed. And they are able to do it efficiently with attention to top quality so you can get back out on the road as soon as possible without worry.
