Timing Belt & Water Pump Replacement in Torrance, CA
What is a Timing Belt? The timing belt is a rubber belt located in the engine compartment behind the drive belts. The timing belt keeps the crankshaft in sync with the camshaft(s), ensuring the proper timing and operation of the engine valves and the engine.
Common symptoms that your Timing Belt needs Replacement:
- Abnormal squeaking coming from the timing cover area.
- If the timing belt breaks, the car will not start.
Agile Auto Care in Torrance Can Take Care of Replacing the Timing Belt Efficiently
The timing belt drives the water pump in 60% of the cars. At Agile Auto Care, our highly trained technicians can timely replace your timing belt. When replacing the timing belt, we highly recommend replacing the timing belt pulleys, tensioners, cams, and crank seals. The tensioner applies pressure to the timing belt keeping it tight, and the pulleys help the timing belt stay in line. Ignoring the manufacturer scheduled timing belt replacement could result in major engine failure later on, a more expensive job. You should not wait until the timing belt breaks, and let our technicians at Agile Auto Care take care of it.
What is a Water Pump? A car’s engine generates a huge amount of heat and needs to be kept cool. The water pump is part of the cooling system. It contains an impeller (looks like a fan) that circulates water and coolant throughout the cooling system, preventing the engine from overheating. Along with the timing belt, sometimes the water pump needs to be replaced as well.
Common symptoms that you may have to replace the Water Pump:
- Coolant (green, red or yellow fluid) is leaking.
- Car is overheating.
- Water Pump Bearings will make noise.
Agile Auto Care in Torrance Can Take Care of Replacing the Water Pump
A water pump is integral to the working of your car. If your water pump stops turning, the engine will overheat and may sustain lasting and often fatal damage. You should replace your coolant every 50,000 miles as part of regular maintenance. If your water pump still needs replacement, which it may at some point, come to Agile Auto Care’s experienced technicians, who can spot the issue and give you an affordable price. Contact Us!
