Serpentine belt replacement

Your serpentine belt transfers power from the crankshaft to all of the engine accessories. Some cars may have a series of V-belts or fan belts, which provide the same functions as the serpentine belt. If a vehicle’s serpentine belt fails engine damage can occur, and the loss of the starting and charging system as well as the power steering.

Timing belt replacement

The timing belt is key to overall engine performance and helps drive the water and oil pumps as well as other key parts of the engine. It also controls when valves in the engine open and close.

Unfortunately, timing belts aren’t visible to inspect since they are hidden within the engine, behind a cover. If your timing belt breaks, your engine will shut off and won’t restart. Some internal components may also get damaged from the belt breaking, which could lead to a costly repair.

In more recent years, some vehicle manufacturers have replaced these belts with timing chains, which don’t require replacement as often as the belt. Stop by Crazy Joe’s Service so we can provide a maintenance schedule for your vehicle and also advise when your timing belt or chain should be replaced according to manufacturer’s recommendations.
