Belts PDF Print E-mail
Various belts drive accessories like your alternator, water pump, and air conditioning compressor as well as operate within your engine to keep things going. With time, belts wear and may crack. To protect yourself from unexpected failure, belts should be inspected regularly and replaced at least on the manufacturer's recommended schedule.

At AJ Foreign Auto, we review the manufacturers’ service schedule for your car, as well as perform a complete inspection every time you visit us. If replacement is scheduled or we see a problem, we'll let you know. We provide the options for you to decide on the proper maintenance of your car.

Timing belts

These belts are toothed, reinforced belts used to drive the camshaft via a sprocket to a crankshaft. They ensure the synchronization of the engine's camshaft, crankshaft and distributor.

Serpentine belts

These belts transfer power from the crankshaft to all of the engine accessories. When this single belt breaks, it can cause damage to the engine through overheating, loss of the charging system or loss of power steering.

Quotes

Let a man find himself, in distinction from others, on top of two wheels with a chain-at least in a poor country like Russia-and his vanity begins to swell out like his tyres. In America it takes an automobile to produce this effect. --Leon Trotsky (1879-1940), Russian revolutionary. The History of the Russian Revolution, vol. 2, ch. 7 (1933).
