Signs That Your Ford Timing Belt Needs Replacing

Like many car problems, a failing timing belt comes with symptoms. Be aware and you’ll save yourself from being stranded.

  • Noises – From a ticking sound to a very loud screeching when starting, idling or accelerating, you should always be aware and listen for new sounds coming from your Ford vehicle.
  • Problems at High RPMs – A worn or cracked Ford timing belt will slip and cause problems when accelerating. This typically becomes apparent in the 2,000 to 4,000 RPM range.
  • Major Misfire – A slipped belt won’t work correctly which means neither can your engine. If the engine misfires, do not ignore it. Damage can quickly spread and worsen.
  • Black Smoke – A bad belt creates a domino effect. Once you start having engine misfires, you’ll then have exhaust issues and that means significant black smoke from your exhaust pipe.
  • Dead Engine – If your vehicle cylinders can’t fire, your engine won’t turn over. That could mean a broken Ford timing belt. A snapped belt while in motion will also stop the engine immediately and could cause significant damage to other components.
