Automotive Tips from Aero Auto Repair: Timing Belt Overview

In your engine, valves over each combustion chamber open to allow fresh air in, close during the combustion event, and then other valves open to let out the exhaust. All of this happens over and over thousands of times a minute when you are driving around San Diego. The timing belt’s important job is to make sure that all of this happens as it should – at precisely the right time. If the timing is off, your engine won’t run efficiently or maybe not at all – so a good timing belt is important. If it should break, you could end up at Aero Auto Repair with expensive engine damage.Ask your friendly and professional Aero Auto Repair service advisor when your timing belt is scheduled for replacement.Give us a call.Aero Auto Repair9756 Aero DriveSan Diego, California 92123858-467-9999http://www.aeroautorepairsandiego.com

Automotive Tips from Aero Auto Repair: When to Replace a Damaged Tire

Repair or Replace? That’s a question San Diego drivers ask when they have tire damage. Some punctures cannot be repaired because of their size or location. Punctures larger than a quarter of an inch (6.4 mm) are considered too large to be safely repaired. Punctures in the sidewall or near the shoulders may not be able to be repaired. And sometimes there is internal damage revealed on inspection that indicates the tire should not be repaired. Run flat tires should not be repaired. Repairing high performance tires may make them unsuitable for motorsports. Your friendly and professional Aero Auto Repair service advisor can inspect your damaged tire and tell you if it can be safely repaired or if it should be replaced - and then help you get back on the roads around San Diego.Give us a call.Aero Auto Repair9756 Aero DriveSan Diego, California 92123858-467-9999http://www.aeroautorepairsandi ... read more

Automotive Tips from Aero Auto Repair: Making a Battery Last Longer

One thing all San Diego drivers can do to extend the life of their battery is to keep it clean. A greasy, dirty battery holds in damaging heat. Same goes for removing corrosion from the terminals. Aero Auto Repair can help maintain your battery.Allowing your battery to be deeply depleted – like from using your headlights when the engine is off – is very harmful to your battery. Most automotive batteries can only take that about 10 times before they are ruined.Also, making sure you have a full charge every month or so extends battery life. Either an extended drive at freeway speeds around the San Diego are or using a battery charger will preserve your battery’s ability to hold a full charge.Give us a call.Aero Auto Repair9756 Aero DriveSan Diego, California 92123858-467-9999http://www.aeroautorepairsandiego.com

Automotive Tips from Aero Auto Repair: Serpentine Belt System Wear

The primary job of the serpentine belt for San Diego drivers is to provide important traction to spin the accessories. As the belt wears it loses some of its grip and the accessories may not spin at optimal speeds. For example, if your alternator doesn’t spin fast enough, the battery will not completely recharge while you’re driving and you could end up stranded around San Diego with a dead battery. In short, a worn serpentine belt will stress all of the accessories it powers leading to premature wear and possible early replacement. When as little as 5% of belt material is lost, the serpentine belt cannot provide the proper traction for the accessories. Your friendly and professional Aero Auto Repair service advisor can inspect your belt for excessive wear and replace your serpentine belt system if it’s excessively worn.Give us a call.Aero Auto Repair9756 Aero DriveSan Diego, California 9212385 ... read more

Vive la Differential at Aero Auto Repair in San Diego

There are a lot of drivers in San Diego who are due for a differential service, but had never heard of a differential before.With front-wheel drive being so common in California these days, the differential is just taken care of during a transmission service, so most San Diego folks don't even have to think about it. And rear-wheel drive differentials don't need to be serviced for years, so it's understandable that it's not something on the top of your mind. It's not uncommon for people in San Diego to not know they have a differential, let alone know that it needs service.To better understand what a differential does, think about a track at any California high school. There are lanes marked off on the track. For the longer distance races, the starting lines are staggered. The starting lines for the outside lanes are ahead of the starting lines for the inside lanes. That's to compensate for the longer length of the outside lanes. Staggering the starting lines means tha ... read more
