You depend on your vehicle on a daily basis, and when your car is in the shop, it seems as if your day has come to a complete stop. At State Street Auto Service, we aim to prevent these situations from happening, as we recognize just how valuable your vehicle is to your day. That’s why we recommend setting aside time for your timing belt. This element of your engine plays an important role in the overall operation of your vehicle for these two main reasons:
The valves in your engine need to open and close at the precise moment in order for the proper intake of air. This intake of air leads to the combustion of fuel and production of energy. If this timing is off, it can cause poor power and rough running engine.
Your timing belt ensures the synchronization of the pistons and valves in your engine. If your car’s timing belt is not working properly, your vehicle’s pistons and valves could fall out of sync and possibly collide. These valves can be quite frail and easy to bend. A possible collision between the valves and pistons could lead to an expensive and potentially dangerous repair.
Our technicians specialize in the service and repair of vehicles run on alternative fuel, so we will ensure each component of your engine is performing as it should, timing belt included. To schedule an appointment, call us at (734) 761-8006. We are conveniently located at 2115 S. State Street, #B, Ann Arbor, MI 48104. Again, happy 2018 from our team at State Street Auto Service!
