Frequently asked questions

What is a Timing Belt?

The timing belt helps keep your Maserati running smoothly - it’s a piece of rubber compound that synchronises the rotation of the crankshaft and the camshaft to ensure the engine’s valves open and close at just the right time.

When do I need to replace my Timing Belt?

The recommended intervals for replacing a timing belt vary between 60,000 and 100,000 miles depending on the model of your Maserati. You will find the recommended replacement intervals in your car’s maintenance schedule, or our Houghton le Spring garages can check for you. However, a timing belt can break before the recommended interval.

What are the signs of a worn Timing Belt?

The symptoms of timing belt failure include:

  • Unusual engine revving during acceleration, typically between 2000 and 4000 RPM
  • Your Maserati doesn’t start or run properly
  • Your Maserati exhaust emits more smoke than normal
  • The car judders
  • The engine makes strange noises
Our Houghton le Spring garages will also be able to check the condition of the belt itself.
What does it cost to change a Timing Belt?
The timing belt itself is not particularly expensive, but the cost of labour means that, in the Houghton le Spring area, you should expect to pay between £300 and £400 depending on the Maserati model that you own.
What happens if my Timing Belt breaks?
The timing of your Maserati's engine must be kept to exact specifications or the engine will not run correctly, if at all. In the worst case scenario, the valves and pistons could collide at high speed and essentially destroy the engine. The best case scenario is that the timing belt breaks and you are towed to the nearest Houghton le Spring garage without doing major damage to the engine.
