Orient Auto Service Offers Toyota Repair In Gresham 

Orient Auto Service is known in Gresham for offering specialized and professional auto services for specific Japanese and Korean vehicles. We started in 1980 by offering limited specialized services and have expanded our service to include vehicles made by Subaru, Nissan, Mazda, Kia, and more! Orient Auto Service specializes in Toyota repairs as well, so don’t hesitate to come to visit us if you need Toyota repair services! 

Common Toyota Repairs 

Like every type of car, Toyotas have their strong points and weak points. Overall, Toyota is a very dependable brand and although some of Toyota’s vehicles have similar issues they are still good vehicles. We believe with any vehicle, though, it is beneficial to know about issues that are possible or likely to crop up. 

Some of the most common issues that Toyota’s vehicles face at the following: 

  • Failed water pumps 
  • Damaged steering rack bushings 
  • Damaged steering rack assemblies 
  • Worn out struts and shock 

Generally speaking, people tend to replace struts all at once. However, that’s because most people will have them replaced after they’ve already reached the recommended travel distance for replacement on all four, which is around 50,000 miles. You may be able to get more out of them, but don’t do longer that 70,000 before replacing your struts.  

For water pump issues, look out for steam, leaking coolant, or an overheating engine. If you’re seeing signs of water pump trouble, be sure to bring your vehicle in right away. 

All these repairs can be done at Orient Auto Service!

Repairs To Be Done Alongside Timing Belt Replacement

Timing Belt Replacement And More At Orient Auto Service 

Orient Auto Service has proudly served the Gresham area since 1980, and we’re eager to continue with our dedicated work. If you live in the Gresham area and drive specific Japanese and Korean models, you likely already know that Orient Auto Service offers specialized auto services for models such as Subaru, Honda, Nissan, Hyundai, and more! If you drive any of these models, your best choice for auto repair and services is at Orient Auto Service. 

Be Practical With Your Auto Repair Schedule 

When it comes to auto repair and maintenance, it can be practical to decide to have certain areas serviced at the same time. Last time we talked about the importance of your timing belt and how often it needs to be replaced. Your timing belt is one of the specific replacements that should be done at the same time as some other forms of maintenance. Replacing your timing belt will take a lot of labor, and certain pieces will need to be removed from the engine to get to it anyway. When you’re having your timing belt replaced, we recommend having these engine components serviced as well. 

Water Pump 

This component is one that will be removed when the timing belt needs to be replaced. The cost for repair is much lower than the general cost of labor, so it’s practical to have this serviced at the same time as the timing belt. 

Pulleys And Tensioner 

These parts are responsible for keeping your timing belt from falling off. They keep it tight so it can run properly. Failure of these parts would cause the same result as timing belt failure, so it is most practical to have them replaced at the same time as the timing belt. 

Front Crank Seal and Camshaft Seals 

This is another form of maintenance in which the replacement of the part is much less than the cost of labor. For this reason, it is useful to have it replaced when the timing belt is replaced. Both components contribute to prolonging the life and performance of your engine. 

Drive Belts 

This part is responsible for driving certain accessories, including the water pump, alternator, air conditioner compressor, and the power steering pump. 

All these repairs can be done at Orient Auto Service!

What Is A Timing Belt? 

One of the many repair services we offer at Orient Auto Service is timing belt replacement. Your timing belt is what keeps your engine in sync. It does this by allowing certain components of the engine, specifically the crankshaft and camshafts, to fire perfectly on time with one another. The timing belt keeps your engine’s systems of valves, cylinder heads, and pistons working in harmony. Timing belts, which are made of rubber, are most common in vehicles made before 1995. After 1995, many vehicles instead made use of a timing chain. 

When Should I Replace My Timing Belt? 

The precise timing won’t be the same for all vehicles, and we encourage you to check for the recommended schedule for your specific year and model. However, a good rule of thumb is to replace your timing belt after every 100,000 miles, or every 7 years. It is important to keep in mind that, depending on your vehicle, you may need more frequent replacements than this. If you fail to replace your timing belt in a timely manner then you can cause major damage to your engines. Without the timing belt, the valves and pistons in your engine will collide together with great force, which will greatly damage them as well as the walls of the cylinders. 

Visit Orient Auto Service today if you need timing belt replacement!
