Wishy-Washy in PEQUANNOCK

Perhaps you've found yourself driving when something all of a sudden splashes on your windshield, obstructing your view. You know that sinking feeling when you try to turn on the windshield washers and no fluid comes out. Now you're blinded even more. What can you do?

Automotive Tips from BOCK AUTOMOTIVE: 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 PEQUANNOCK. 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 BOCK AUTOMOTIVE with expensive engine damage.Ask your friendly and professional BOCK AUTOMOTIVE service advisor when your timing belt is scheduled for replacement.Give us a call.BOCK AUTOMOTIVE1 IRVING STPEQUANNOCK, NJ 07440973-694-1606http://www.bockautomotive.com
