Timing Belt Replacement in Marietta, Georgia

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 Marietta, Georgia.

Timing Belt Replacement

Schedule Timing Belt Replacement Service in Marietta, 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 Marietta, Georgia.

  • WOW!! An amazing experience! Traveled here from Kansas to apartment shop for my daughter who is relocating and my husband was unable to join A part was dragging under the car so we popped in to see if they could help. They were so kind and helpful. Restored my faith in this world. Good people do exist!!

    Would recommend to anyone that needs vehicle maintenance. They are the most honest and reliable mechanic service that I’ve dealt with. Thanks again!

    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 experience was surprisingly excellent. I was greeted immediately before I could actually get out my car. Eric was professional and friendly. Eric Followed up with me has promised. I really like that Eric shares real honest timing/wait expectations.

    I have known Eric and the facility for over 30 years. The service from both a customer and repair stand point is excellent. You can expect to be treated with a high level of professional performance, and courtesy.

    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!

    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.

    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.

  • Honest pricing..."as promised" timely repairs... and good customer service! - I keep coming back to McCullough with a different vehicle (Nissan Truck/Honda Truck/Honda Car) and they knock it outta the park every time!

    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 have been depending on McCullough's at least since 1997, when we purchased a home only a few blocks away, walking distance really. Had our emissions test a few days ago and want to acknowledge Jack, who completed the tests quickly. I asked him to determine why the backup camera was not in the proper position. It took a bit of time and ingenuity to get everything right. Thanks Jack, for the excellent 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.

    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. ☺

    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!

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!!

    McCullough has been my family's go-to mechanic for decades. Don't know what I would do without them - just a super-nice family that will take care of your cars. Their service is important to us because once we get a new car, we like to hold onto it for years (10-12). Highly recommend.

    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%.

  • 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!

    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!
