Mitsubishi Service and Repair

Schedule Mitsubishi 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 Mitsubishi. We’ve been in business since 1969 and have ample experience repairing and replacing timing belt systems for any Mitsubishi model, including the Outlander, Eclipse, Mirage, and more.

    I may have written one other recommendation in my of 50 years, but after doing business with Eric McCullough for 35 of those years it is time to write another one. He maintained and serviced my auto's, my wife, kids and employees for 32 of those 35 years. He has stood behind the work on everything he and his employees have done. He operates his business with great honesty and integrity. I highly recommend doing business. with McCullough

    I do not know if I can type out all that I want to in this review but let me say this. WOW!! Being a single father with a busy schedule I cannot tell you enough how grateful I am for Eric and his team! I have been taking my vehicle to them for over 2 years now and I would not go anywhere else. The honesty, timing and keeping their word every single time is simply priceless! They have saved me so much grief because of my current situation. For all you single fathers out there...these guys got your back! I only have one vehicle and my son and I depend on it being in the best running shape possible. Eric and his team go out of there way EVERY-SINGLE-TIME. During these special times where its harder to get even the simplest things done, that has not slowed down this business. They still give 110% with every customer and are sympathetic to their customers unique situations. People, don't look any further for a shop that you can trust and count on. You will simply waste your time and find no better service in Atlanta. Eric, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you and your guys do. Having open and honest communication with you is always a pleasure. Folks lets do our best to keep these guys busy!! They deserve everyone's business! A++++++

  • I own and automotive repair business in Jacksonville, but my wife lives in Atlanta and needed tires for her car, so I know good service and fair pricing in this industry. I chose McCullough because of their good reviews and they did not disappoint. They were very professional and took good care of my wife. I would highly recommend them and will continue to use them for her service needs.

    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 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.

  • Able to fix issue with my 2011 truck other shops could not address- very hard to diagnose mechanical issue another reputable shops couldn’t figure out. Good prices, done on time, and with expert mechanics. Will have them work on all of my vehicles and highly recommended. Support a family owned business for a change!

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!

    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

    I have used McCullough Auto Care for more than10 years. I needed a reliable auto maintenance service because I commuted weekly to Birmingham. One of the nice things about these guys is they listen when I mention an issue with the car, go over their inspection results of my car and review my bill in detail. I have never been disappointed in their service or the cost of the service I received.

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 Mitsubishi timing belt or timing chain needs replacement.

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. Engine Fails to Turn Over: If your Mitsubishi’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 Mitsubishi 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 Mitsubishi’s recommended timing belt replacement cycle.  If you’re unsure what type of engine your Mitsubishi 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.
