Batteries, belts and blades, oh my! These are your car’s consumables that keep it performing safely and in top condition.
They should be checked and replaced as part of your regular scheduled manufacture suggested maintenance.
Stop by atc Auto Center at our Augusta or Grovetown, GA locations to have your car inspected for consumable wear and tear.
If your serpentine belt were to break on one of our roads, your battery would die in a few miles. If it runs your fan or water pump, your engine could overheat. And steering and braking could be more difficult.
Obviously, the best thing is to replace your serpentine belt before it breaks.
Now, timing belts just wear out naturally so you want to replace a worn belt before it slips or breaks.
If you’ve never replaced your timing belt and have 60,000 or more miles on the clock, talk with your service advisor at atc Auto Center right away to see if you’re due.
Check your owner’s manual for when it’s recommended that you replace your serpentine belt or timing belt – or just ask your service advisor at atc Auto Center by calling. We can inspect the belts as well to see if they’re in trouble.
