When your Check Engine light comes on — and stays on — come to AAA Tire & Lube Co. On many vehicles the Check Engine light is triggered by a wide range of causes, some of them as simple as you’re overdue for an oil change. But it’s important to know what the issue is. AAA Tire & Lube Co. Technicians will perform a diagnostic test which will help them recommend the right repair or service for your vehicle, if one is called for. And of course they can also reset the Check Engine light.
The serpentine belt is a single, continuous belt that drives multiple devices in your engine, such as the alternator, power steering pump, water pump and air conditioning compressor. If your serpentine belt breaks, all of these systems will shut down and your vehicle will overheat. A regular inspection and possible serpentine belt replacement from a AAA Tire & Lube Co. technician will allow all these vital systems keep you and your vehicle on the road.

A symptom that indicates the serpentine belt may need replacing is an unfamiliar noise or screech from the engine compartment caused by a frayed, split or worn out belt. AAA Tire & Lube Co. Technicians visually inspect the serpentine belt for fraying, splitting, glazing (the working edge of the belt becomes shiny from age and wear) or any other damage. If necessary, your AAA Tire & Lube Co. technicians will remove the old serpentine belt and install a new one.
Whether on the interior or exterior, lights are an important vehicle safety feature. They help you see the road, be seen by other drivers, navigate around the passenger cabin and communicate important engine system information.
