FREE TIMING BELT
That’s right! Throughout the entire month of May, we’ll be giving away FREE TIMING BELTS* to promote good engine care and optimum performance.

To maintain your vehicle’s mechanical integrity, your engine’s internal components must be properly synchronized. The TIMING BELT helps keep these components in sync by causing the valves to open and close at the proper time.

It’s crucial that the TIMING BELT be replaced at or before the
interval recommended by the manufacturer. Failure to do so can result in a belt breaking, which can leave you stranded and, in many cases, cause severe internal engine damage.

Don’t take a chance on being stuck on the road with a costly
repair bill. Call or stop in today to take advantage of this
spectacular chance to save.

SERPENTINE BELT
You know that long belt that snakes around the front of your engine? It’s called the serpentine belt. The serpentine belt is driven by the engine as it turns. It powers your alternator, air conditioning compressor, and power steering pump. On some vehicles it also runs the water pump, radiator fan, and power brakes. Sounds like a lot of important stuff doesn’t it?

If your serpentine belt were to break on one of our St. Louis, Missouri roads, your battery would die in a few miles. If it runs your fan or water pump, your engine could overheat. And steering and braking could be more difficult. Obviously, the best thing is to replace your serpentine belt before it breaks.

INSET VIDEO - Your vehicle won't run if the serpentine belt breaks
20 percent of vehicles on the road today need a serpentine belt replacement. A worn belt can not only break without warning, it can slip and damage important engine accessories. Have your belt inspected and replace it if it is worn or damaged. You'll be glad you did. At Sparks Tire & Auto in St. Charles Missouri we install quality NAPA replacement parts. Give us a call at 636-946-5900 and let us help keep you safely and economically on the road.

TIMING BELT REPLACEMENT

The right time to replace timing belts.
Timing belts are considered wear items and should be checked according to the manufacturer’s recommended service schedule. Most manufacturers suggest replacing the belt between 60,000 to 105,000 miles. Check your owner’s manual or ask a Sparks Tire & Auto Service Technician by stopping by at 1665 Scherer Pkwy. St Charles, MO 63303 or call (636) 946-5900 about the specific schedule for your vehicle. A broken timing belt will stop your car…instantly. It can also result in costly engine damage and inconvenience.

Free-Running or Interference Engine?
An engine is either “interference” or “free-running” depending on its design. If the timing belt breaks in an interference engine, an open valve may be struck by a moving piston. This can result in serious damage and expensive repairs, and in some cases a new engine. A “free-running” engine design will not result in extensive engine damages should the timing belt fail. The motorist will still have to deal with the inconvenience of being stranded, towing expense, and the cost of timing belt replacement.

Tensioners and idlers are critical components that work hand in hand with the timing belt. Tensioners and idlers work together to keep the timing belt properly tensioned. The timing belt system uses idlers and/or pulleys to either change the direction of the belt or transmit power to a component such as a water pump or oil pump.

Why replace tensioners and idlers?
Worn tensioners or idler pulley bearings are the leading causes of timing belt failures. Like timing belts, tensioners and idlers wear out. They need to be replaced before they fail.

The right time to replace tensioners and idlers.
Tensioner and idler wear is difficult to detect. Many tensioners that look okay may be at or near the end of their service life. In some cases, the newly installed timing belt may fail after a few thousand miles if the tensioner or idler is worn or loose.

Should timing belt driven water pumps be replaced?
You can save considerable expense by replacing your already high mileage water pump at the same time you have the timing belt replaced. In both cases the labor cost is a large part of the expense and the labor procedures are basically the same. Doing everything at the same time will result in big long term cost savings. Ask a Sparks Tire & Auto service advisors to explain the components involved with your particular make and model.

Save money by asking for a timing system replacement.
When you replace your timing belt have your tensioner, idler and water pump changed at the same time because the additional cost is insignificant compared to the cost of accessing the timing belt. Your service technician can do it right the first time because he doesn’t have to re-do all the labor again to replace the tensioner, idler and water pump. Your new timing belt will be protected from damage caused by failure of these parts.
