Schedule Chrysler Timing Belt Replacement in Atlanta, Georgia
A timing belt is a toothed belt that keeps the top half of your engine aligned with the crankshaft and pistons in the bottom of the engine. Timing belt replacement is important because allowing it to go unrepaired can lead to very expensive engine damage. Your timing belt choreographs the timing of your combustion process as your pistons travel up and down in the cylinder. Intake valves open at a specific time to let in air and fuel and they close at a specific time to allow the fuel to burn, and then the exhaust valves open at the right time to let out the exhaust.
This may sound like a complicated process, but the timing belt is designed to make it all happen seamlessly. A typical timing belt replacement timeline is every 5 years or 60,000 miles, whichever comes first. A faulty timing belt can have a directly negative impact on your engine. If your timing belt breaks while driving, your engine will stop working completely. The best way to avoid this is through preventative scheduled maintenance.
McCullough NAPA Auto Care staffs ASE Certified technicians with the experience and technology to properly diagnose any timing belt issues you may be experiencing with your Chrysler. We’ve been in business since 1969 and have ample experience repairing and replacing timing belt systems for any Chrysler model, including the Chrysler 300, Pacifica, and more.

Eric and Company are a first class operation! They get it right the first time in every time! They will pick me up and drop me off to make it 100 times more convenient. They treat me like family and look after my best interest not just their bottom line! These are the kind of people that I value doing business with

Always extremely professional. Willing to work with customers. Sadly, car repair is expensive but they have worked with me. Graham has been extremely helpful with issues my daughter was having with her car while we were at another mechanic in the area. We asked on Nextdoor for recommendations and McCullough came up numerous times!

They figured out the issue with my Pathfinder and made the repair quickly. Eric is very thorough and kept me up to date the entire time. This was my first time using them but I will use them again!

I have used McCullough for maintenance on my prior vehicle and received great service. Recently I had to repair my front bumper - I received an estimate for repair services that was reasonable. The estimated turn around time was less days than other auto shops. The best part was, the staff (Graham) was accommodating with my schedule and the repair was completed as expected/on time. The work completed was great. I absolutely recommended McCullough for auto care services.

Eric at McCullough has been taking care of my family's [multiple] cars for over 10 years now. A Volkswagen, a Nissan, and 2 Acuras: They've done minor repairs all the way to major transmission replacements. Eric is trustworthy, honest, and tells you what really needs to be done versus what can wait. Their prices seem reasonable (although in fairness I haven't been anywhere else recently b/c I'm so pleased with them), they are timely, and always communicate what the car needs in detail. I can't recommend these guys enough!

The technicians are excellent, very experienced, and the customer service is great. Everything was explained in detail so that I would understand.

Eric has been my service manager for years. He is always professional and easy to deal with. He goes out of his way to take care of your needs and makes accommodations to the customer when needed. They will ferry me and my car to and from their shop (I live within blocks) and I appreciate that very much. Everyone at McCullough is nice, friendly and helpful.

This shop is the best. They did everything they could so I would have minimal time without my car such as having all parts ready before they scheduled the repair. They are super nice and no surprises on price. They opened up my bumper and found a part was damaged. They could have left it the way it and no one would have known but they were honest and did the right thing. I recommend 100%.

I had a check engine light on Saturday afternoon, ended up being an engine coil pack needing to be replaced. It was obviously super busy and I knew I would need to leave it until Monday to get looked at. Staff was very informative and communication was excellent. Got it looked at Monday and ordered necessary part to come in the next day. Went ahead and did the spark plugs as well since I was nearing 60k miles. Picked it up after lunch with no issues. Seems like they do really well with the small space provided and very busy area right off 285

Great customer service! Eric and team did an awesome job coordinating their busy schedule with the schedule of my girlfriend and myself so that we would have a car during the work week and then trade off cars when the other was ready. They are extremely friendly and it felt like they had us as the customer in mind. Highly recommend!

Extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and professional people. Would definitely go here again if I was in the area and needed them!
October 2, 2020
I was so impressed with these guys!! Family business and the guys are professional, efficient, and personable. They got my part quickly and fit me in so I could come while my kids were at school. They went the extra mile (no pun intended) to consult with another auto body shop to make sure the repair was stable. I will be coming back for all future auto needs and will recommend them widely.
September 10, 2019
We had an issue with a splash shield dragging and overheating. We are heading back to Kansas this afternoon. They were able to fit us in despite being super busy & do a quick fix and sent us on our way in 10 minutes. So kind and amazing service!

McCullough Auto Care has earned our trust over the past two years by consistently giving us quality, reliable repairs at fair prices. The staff is polite, knowledgeable, and never tries to talk us into things we don't need or want. We will continue to trust McCullough for all of our repairs.
October 10, 2021
Got me in the same day and kept me up to date. Fixed what was needed and did not push any costly add ons like other places do. Feel like I can trust these guys.

My vehicle was on the verge of breaking down while I was in Sandy Springs for work last week (I live in a different town), and my boyfriend had determined that it was a problem with the alternator. He helped me find McCulloch Auto Care, which was right down the street. We'd noticed the good reviews, and we took a chance! The staff is super friendly, professional, and kind. They were able to confirm our suspicions about my car's specific issues, and took us as soon as they could. I was so impressed with their customer service. They really went above and beyond to meet my repair needs, had a fair price, and worked quickly to repair the issue. I almost wish I lived closer just so that I could have my car serviced here more often! Great family owned business.

Eric was amazing from start to finish. I chose this shop for my repair based on previous reviews & I'm glad I did. He made sure to, in my opinion, go above and beyond with his politeness, as well as helping to make the process smooth and to try to save me as many coins as he could, while still getting done what was needed. Very happy with this visit

I found my new home for car repair. Eric was very nice and honest. We definitely be coming back! Thank you for the excellent customer service.

I would normally recommend this business as I have been here a few times. I went there Friday for an oil change. However, I honestly didn't feel safe. They have signs that customers must wear a mask. There was only one employee wearing a mask themselves. All the others didn't have a mask on. I feel this is disrespectful to their customers. I understand it can be uncomfortable but it is essential during these times.

A staff of gentlemen ready to answer every question with a smile and great knowledge. They not only gave me a good estimate but they completed the work a day early! I highly recommend McCullough NAPA Auto Care to you. You will not be disappointed by the care they put into your vehicle.

Brian and the team were fantastic with handling my issue. In fact they discovered a major error which occurred when I had my last oil change done at a quick oil change place, which turned out to be the cause of my issue. They took pics of it and wrote out an explanation for me to give to the previous oil chance place. Because of their extra effort, I am getting reimbursed for the error. I highly recommend Brian and the team!

Good, honest, and fair shop. If you are in sandy spring, I would not go anywhere else. Family owned and operated - take care of their customers and their crew it seems. 6 stars
January 23, 2020
This is the best place you could possibly go to take care of your car! My family and I have been going here for over 15 years and we recommend them to everyone. Eric, Bryan, and Graham are the most trustworthy guys and truly care about their customers. We all love them and are so thankful we found them!!

Signs You Need Timing Belt or Timing Chain Replacement
A bad timing belt may produce a ticking, rattling sound from the engine as the belt develops a looser fit against the engine. Misfiring or backfiring is also common with bad timing belts. Here are 5 signs that your Chrysler timing belt or timing chain needs replacement.
Engine Misfire: One of the primary signs of a timing belt or chain issue is engine misfires. The timing belt or chain synchronizes the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft so that the engine’s valves open and close at the correct times. If the belt or chain is worn or damaged, it can slip and cause the engine to misfire. If left unresolved, this can lead to a catastrophic engine failure.
Ticking Noise from the Engine: A ticking noise from the engine is often indicative of a worn or loose timing belt or chain. The belt or chain connects the crankshaft to the camshaft, controlling the opening and closing of the engine valves. If it’s loose, it can produce a ticking or clicking sound as the engine runs. This should not be ignored as it may lead to serious engine damage.
Rough Idling or Difficulty in Starting the Car: When the teeth on the timing belt wear out, they can detach and fall into the timing chain cover, causing the engine to idle roughly or making it difficult to start the car. The engine may also stutter or stall due to the inability of the valves and pistons to synchronize properly.
Oil Leakage: A worn-out timing belt or chain can lead to oil leakage from the front of the motor. The belt or chain runs through various engine components, and wear and tear can cause these components, like the timing cover, to loosen. This looseness can result in oil leakage, which can lead to more severe engine issues if not promptly addressed.
Engine Fails to Turn Over: If your Chrysler’s engine will not turn over or start, it may be due to a broken timing belt or chain. The timing belt or chain is essential for the pistons and valves to function correctly. A broken belt or chain means that these components won’t move, leading to the engine failing to start.
In all these cases, it’s crucial to get the car to a service center for inspection as soon as possible. Ignoring these warning signs can lead to more severe and expensive damage, including possible engine failure.
Can a Broken Timing Belt or Chain Destroy My Chrysler Engine?
The answer is tricky as it depends on what type of engine you have. Interference engines can easily be destroyed by a broken timing belt, whereas non-interference engines are unlikely to be damaged from a broken timing belt. However, even with a non-interference engine, you should still follow your Chrysler’s recommended timing belt replacement cycle. If you’re unsure what type of engine your Chrysler has, the technicians at McCullough NAPA Auto Care can determine that for you and make recommendations for how best to repair or replace your timing belt.

Have you ever experienced a rough-running engine or felt your vehicle losing power? This may be due to an engine misfire. An engine misfire occurs when one or more cylinders fail to ignite properly during combustion. This issue can significantly impact your vehicle’s performance and should be handled promptly to prevent further damage.
The engine air filter in your car keeps dirt and debris from entering your engine. Much like you, your engine needs clean air to function. A clogged air filter can cause your engine to work harder than it needs to.
