Theodore

Theodore was very meticulous with his work. Since I couldn't find anyone in the Seattle area, he came all the way from Redmond. He changed all the spark plugs in my car. I was thinking of changing all the ignition coils of my engine but Theodore insisted I should change the one that reported misfire and helped me save some money. He also spent some time diagnosing other problems I had - screeching sound from the air conditioner and suggested what I should do. Also he advised me to change the air conditioner filter and buy it from Amazon because it is cheaper.

All about Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement

The serpentine/drive belt or v-belt is a rubber belt that connects the alternator, power steering, and AC to the part of the engine (crankshaft) which transfers the power from the engine to those components. Without this belt, the battery will not get charged and none of the electrical accessory components in the car will work. The serpentine belt and v-belt are also known as "drive belts." Because of the high amount of heat in the engine, the belt can develop cracks over time and eventually break. If the belt breaks, the steering wheel will be difficult to turn and driving will be hazardous. In some cars, water pumps are driven by the drive belts. If the belt breaks, water and coolant needed to keep the engine cool will not properly flow to the engine. The engine will overheat, potentially causing severe damage.
