Joshua

Joshua was able to come earlier than we had booked. He was very professional and polite. After he backed my car out of the garage, he went right to work. I checked on him once and I was very impressed how neatly he had his tools set up. Not only did he replace my front brakes, but he gave the car a test drive, checked all the fluids and put air in my tires. He told me loves what he does. He showed me pictures of the work he had done. He took photos with his iphone as he did the work so I could see what he had done. That was a first!!!

Trung was able to meet before the scheduled time, which worked out great for me. When he arrived he was very professional and finished the job in less than the estimated time for repair. He also was thorough about documenting the repairs done on the car.

Ken showed up bright and early for my inspection appointment at my house. He was very nice and professional and went through a 150 point inspection check list very thoroughly. Overall, he thought my new used car was in pretty good shape and gave it a clean bill of health. If I have any other work I need done I wouldn't hesitate to reach out to Ken again.

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.
