Automotive Tips from Aero Auto Repair: A Broken or Damaged Timing Belt

The timing belt rotates the cam shafts which open and close the valves that allow air, fuel, and exhaust to flow through the engine as it powers your car when you drive around San Diego.An old timing belt can lose a “tooth” in the belt allowing it to slip. The engine could stop or misfire. Timing belt slips – or a broken timing belt – can be disastrous on some engines. In “interference” engines, open valves can get in the way of the piston when the timing belt breaks or slips. When that happens one or more valves can be bent requiring expensive engine repairs.It is important for San Diego drivers to replace their timing belts as recommended in their owner’s manual to avoid unnecessary breakdowns. Ask the team of professionals at Aero Auto Repair in San Diego if it’s time for your timing belt to be replaced. Aero Auto Repair9756 Aero DriveSan Diego, California 9212385 ... read more

Let Aero Auto Repair Help You Keep Your Vehicle Another Couple of Years

San Diego area residents may remember when the U.S. government's “Cash for Clunkers” program made a splash on the news scene. People were offered incentives to trade in old vehicles for new, in the interest of better and improved air quality from reduced emissions.But a lot of San Diego drivers want to hang onto their old clunkers.

Automotive Tips from Aero Auto Repair: Battery Testing

The simple fact is that 70% of car batteries fail within 4 years. They just need to be replaced at Aero Auto Repair when they are no longer able to hold a full charge.Batteries are a big ticket item for most San Diego drivers and it’s tempting to put off buying a new one as long as possible. But a battery that cannot hold a full charge requires the alternator to work extra hard, causing it to wear out prematurely.Your Aero Auto Repair service advisor can test your battery to see if it should be replaced. Testing is a good idea for California drivers because a battery might still be good, but become dead because of a bad alternator or even a worn serpentine belt and tensioner.
