What is a Timing Belt?

What is a Timing Belt?

Most cars will have multiple belts in the engine compartment that help transfer power between different components and keep the car running properly. It's important to know the differences between these belts, as well as maintenance and replacement procedures when they start to get worn out.

5 Common Signs You Might Have Suspension Problems

5 Common Signs You Might Have Suspension Problems

It's nice to enjoy a smooth ride in your car. A number of things can affect the handling and overall performance of your vehicle, including the wheel alignment, tire treads, tire pressure, axles, differentials and brakes. In this article, we want to focus on your suspension system. Suspension Components The three main components of your suspension system are the springs, shocks and struts. Springs may come in the form of coil springs (most modern cars) and leaf springs (some older vehicles). They help absorb bumps and maintain consistent vehicle height. Some people may also get aftermarket air-ride suspension systems that can be tricky to maintain and repair. Shocks and struts are often referred to simultaneously or interchangeably, but they are two completely different components that provide similar yet distinct support and shock absorption functions. Most vehicles ... read more
