Service Details

Car Service La Mesa provides many specialized services to keep your car running in prime condition, including serpentine belt and drive belt maintenance, replacement, inspection and repair. Our expert mechanics in La Mesa are on hand to assess and fix any issues with these key components – especially camshaft timing belts – which must remain fully functional to prevent costly engine damage or complete vehicle breakdown.

Warning Signs of a Needed Belt Replacement

Belts in need of replacement will begin to squeak when their metal wear indicators begin to make contact with the metal rotor when pressing either gas or brake pedal. This serves as an early warning that they need replacing, giving you time to get it to Car Service La Mesa before they breakdown completely.

An engine with a broken belt could be in danger, particularly the timing belt which can be difficult to replace without dismantling it completely. A timing belt synchronizes crankshaft and camshaft rotations while simultaneously opening and closing valves to regulate fuel and air intake and output; should it fail or break, this could cause valves to strike against pistons destroying your engine and incurring expensive repairs costs.

When to Change Your Drive Belts

Belt replacement may seem like a relatively minor expense, but waiting until it fails can cost much more in the long run. It is recommended that belts be changed every 60,000-100,000 miles; for further recommendations specific to your make and model.

Your car may show several telltale signs that it needs a new belt, including failing to start up. Should it break completely, all associated parts must also be replaced – an expense much greater than regularly inspecting and replacing your belt as recommended by manufacturers.

Other symptoms to look out for may include power loss or car pulling to one side or another. If these issues arise, bring your vehicle immediately to Car Service La Mesa so we can inspect its belt as well as any related components like camshaft and cylinder head.
