Why Serpentine Belt Checks are Critical,

 

 

All of us have those days when we’ve got a bunch of errands to run. Suppose on your day off you need to get gas, pick up some groceries, swing by your ATM and get the kids from school. Now you could make four trips, but that would be a waste of time and money – totally inefficient. Instead you get organized and hit the ATM first and get some gas next. Then you go to the supermarket and pick up the kids on the way home. Way better use of your time.

Cooling System Repairs

A customer came into the shop with their temperature warning light on with their car over heating and in a panic.  After it cooled down, we discovered the water pump was leaking and needed to be replaced.  Water pumps do wear out as they pump the coolant that cools the engine while its running.   We also checked the radiator hoses, serpentine belt, and tensioner which were okay, but did note that the coolant needed to be changed which many customers do not associate with engine maintenance.
