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!
