Is Your Fleet Facing Premature Wear? See How We Tackled Tough Wet Belt Issue On A Ford Transit 2021

June 26, 2024

At The Car Edition, we’ve recently encountered a startling discovery during a routine service of a 2021 Ford Transit – a vehicle just three years old with a severely damaged wet belt. The timing belt had missing teeth, which not only compromised the engine’s functionality but also posed a significant risk of further engine damage. The remnants of these missing teeth were found in the sump, leading to a clogged oil pickup. This scenario could have led to catastrophic engine failure if left undetected.

What We Did

Our skilled technicians conducted a comprehensive overhaul of the vehicle’s timing system, replacing the damaged components and ensuring that everything was restored to perfect working order. Here’s what the service included:

  • Timing cover and seal
  • Timing belt
  • Water pump
  • Oil pump belt
  • Fresh oil and oil filter
  • Tensioner
  • Strainer
  • Auxiliary belts
  • Sump

The complete replacement was carried out using only genuine parts, ensuring the highest quality and durability. We documented the entire process and shared the results on our TikTok channel, which you can view here.

This incident highlights the critical importance of regular health checks and maintenance, especially for newer models with wet belt designs. Timing belt issues can often go unnoticed until they cause significant engine damage, which is why proactive maintenance is crucial.
