BMW Timing Parts
BMW has always prioritized their passion for quality and innovative designs throughout their history, all the while keeping the competition on their toes with their highly developed automobiles. BMW makes up one of the German big three for auto manufacturers, beside Audi and Mercedes. They embody the three highest selling luxury vehicle creators in the world. Their integrity is recognized and is showcased in their products, especially their timing parts and components. The common timing belt is produced to last until about 100,000 miles. This time frame can become shorter with a lot of driving, at about 10,000 miles per year or more. Examining for symptoms of wear or damage and being aware of your driving conditions will help you know when is the right time to replace your BMW’s timing belt. The timing belt's job is to basically regulate the engine, so simply fixing your timing belt is not a great idea and FCP advises against doing so. It is just too much of a risk to your BMW. First, turn off your BMW, then lift open the hood and find the timing belt. Take a look and inspect the belt and check for noticeable signs of wear, including, drying, cracking, or fraying of the edges. Also take a gander at the mileage on your BMW’s odometer. If it is reading above 100,000 miles, the fact alone could be why you may have a worn out to damaged timing belt and need it replaced. If you have questions about BMW’s timing parts or components, the FCP Euro team and website are in place for your convenience.

Now, start up your BMW and let the engine run for a bit. If the engine begins to run hotter than it should, idling louder, or vibrating, this is usually a symptom of your timing belt becoming faulty. Sometimes you may even hear knocking or ticking sounds stemming from the your BMW’s engine area. Another way to tell if your timing belt is on the fritz is to drive your BMW in a small area, like a parking lot, to see if is backfiring. This is a distinctive gunshot type of sound that at times can come up, especially in older models. This happens the most when you slow down the vehicle. In short, when your BMW’s timing belt is running too fast or too slow it is negatively affecting your engine, as a whole.
