Integrity Automotive Talks About the Importance of Scheduled Maintenance

Integrity Automotive’s certified mechanic Chris wanted to talk today about recommended maintenance or scheduled maintenance of your vehicle. This 2002 Nissan Frontier came in about 6 months ago (at 140,000 miles) for other issues. Our car technician noticed the timing belt had not been replaced, which is recommended to be replaced at 120,000 mile, and recommended its replacement. The owner decided to wait…



Fast forward 6 months and our car technician got a call as the truck was not working properly, unfortunately for the owner in this case they waited too long and at 161,000 miles the timing belt broke. As you can see in this picture, the belt didn’t snap as what is commonly thought. Instead the rubber teeth in the timing belt that work similar to the teeth in a gear broke off. Integrity Automotive’s technician is still working on the extensive damage from the timing belt breaking.

Because the owner chose to put off the scheduled maintenance on this Nissan Frontier what could have been a few hundred dollars to repair will now be at least a few thousand dollars to repair.
