Timing Belt Service
Over time, the belts that connect and power many of your car’s components can wear out, causing mechanical failure that could leave you stranded – and can cause expensive damage to other parts of your car, including the engine. Kwik Kar Flower Mound can perform regular belt checks as well as regularly scheduled maintenance and replacement.
For example, your engine’s timing belt connects the crankshaft and camshaft, keeping your engine’s components synchronized and also driving other components such as the water pump, oil pump, and balance shafts. If your timing belt needs to be replaced, it may be a good idea to replace other parts at the same time due to their easy accessibility.
Another commonly replaced belt is the serpentine belt, which powers the air conditioner compressor, air pump, cooling fan, alternator, power steering pump, water pump, and other vehicle components. Kwik Kar’s skilled technicians can inspect your serpentine belt for cracks, and can quickly replace it if it is showing signs of wear or it’s time for its regularly scheduled replacement.
