Let’s address a very important maintenance item – timing belt replacement. Timing belt replacement is important because letting this one slide 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 the right time to let in air and fuel, they close at the right 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. McCullough NAPA Auto Care stocks various timing belts and offers timing belt replacement near Brookhaven, Georgia.

Timing Belt Replacement

Schedule Timing Belt Replacement Service in Brookhaven, GA

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. Contact us below to learn more about timing belt replacement or preventative scheduled maintenance. 

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 timing belt or timing chain needs replacement.

  1. Ticking or rattling in the engine
  2. Engine misfires
  3. Visible wear and tear
  4. Engine won’t start
  5. Metal shavings in engine oil

Can a Broken Timing Belt or Chain Destroy My 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 vehicle’s recommended timing belt replacement cycle. Contact McCullough NAPA for your timing belt replacement service. We are located near Brookhaven, Georgia.

    Had experienced front tire damage hitting metal debris on I-285 just before Rosewll exit. Immediately exited on Roswell and saw NAPA sign and pulled in. Place was busy! But got attention immediately by Jeff service worker. Got tire off my car no waiting. Wow! Determined rim bent but tire still good. He could have sold me a new tire and i would have not known better. So appreciative. Then met with Eric McCullough and quickly arranged to have rim fixed. I decided on new tires for safety and were worn. Eric got me great deal on tires and had my car fixed SAME day. Eric runs a super customer-focused operation. Kudos! Bruce Fike

  • Honest and fair price!!! I went in for 60k mile service. They said I only needed oil and cabin air filter changed. That is refreshing honesty! Saved me big bucks! This will be my new shop for my car service. ☺

    After recently moving to the area, I had a vehicle emergency where my transmission needed replacing. Graham immediately took me in and was SO kind, professional, and direct about the costs; one of their kind staff members even drove me home after my car was dropped for repair so that I did not have to call a car service. They were so patient with me and got my car back to me in one day completely fixed and ready to go! I will never use any other automotive repair shop in the area! ABSOLUTELY recommend without hesitation!

    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!

  • I know for me one hard thing about choosing a mechanic is brushing off all previous notions I have about mechanics Potentially not treating my car how they would treat their own car. This place has done more than exceed my expectations. I got a phone call for every update, I got a thorough description of what was to be done and what was wrong, not only that, but where the dealership said it would take them two weeks to fix my car, these guys did it in less than 24 hours. I have never been happier to spend $300 in my life. Anything I need in the future, you can be sure I’ll bring it here.

    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!

    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++++++

  • Have been going to McCollough’s for decades! Once I found them, I knew they were honest and professional. Not often one can say that about an auto repair place. They have helped me keep my older vehicles safely on the road for longer than I could imagine. I have always been treated with respect, no matter how large or small the issue, which is excellent and reassuring for an older woman.Highly recommend them!

    Came in for emissions and they exceeded my expectations! Saw headlight out, replaced it. Saw no oil sticker, checked it and put a little in it until i can get back in for change. While waiting you could tell these guys really care about their customers and the safety of their vehicles. Definitely will be coming back here!

    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!

    I have used this company twice and was VERY impressed both times with the honesty, knowledge, and cost-effectiveness of the mechanics that I worked with. They were upfront with me on what I needed to do now vs what could wait, showed me where I could save money, and worked with me to make sure I had my car finished before I needed it that weekend. Again, very very impressed. I wouldn't take my car anywhere else in Atlanta.

    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.

    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 received great service from this location! I called them about replacing a serpentine belt and they got it done for me the very next morning. It was quick, and cheaper than some other places that I had called for the same service. Eric and his team did a great job, and they were very nice! I will definitely return for any other auto repair I may need in the future.
