No matter where or how you drive, you’re going to need to maintain your car to keep it running safely and efficiently.
The purpose of timing gears is to allow the camshaft and crankshaft to turn the timing chain.
The serpentine belt, also known as the drive belt, is a belt on a car engine that works with the idler, tensioner, and pulleys inside the accessory drive belt system.
