Ford Timing Belts, Chains & Kits
Keeping every component in your vehicle running smoothly and methodically is important and the timing belt is responsible for a lot of this synchronicity.
This important part lines up the rotations of your camshaft and crankshaft so that your valves open and close in the correct order and at the right time. If it fails, not only does it mean that your entire engine will be out of sync, but the actual failure can lead to extensive damage to your machine, which is why these components need to be inspected and replaced regularly before it reaches that point.
How often should you replace your Ford timing chain kit?
Be it for a Transit, Fiesta, Falcon, Focus, Ranger or another model, you should have your timing belt replaced roughly every 100,000km or every 5-10 years – depending on the volume and types of driving you to undertake. If you are putting in heavy kilometres, you may need to replace it sooner. It should also be checked every inspection for any signs of damage or degradation.
Ensure that your mechanic is attending to your timing chain kit and belt at every inspection, and also try to monitor its condition yourself. Any signs of damage should be addressed immediately.
The signs to watch out for
There are some signs you may notice in between inspections that could indicate that your Ford’s timing belt is due for a replacement. These warning signs include a ticking noise coming from the engine, low oil pressure, oil leaks and misfires. If it has broken completely, your engine will not start at all.
