Automotive Tips from PONTE'S AUTOCARE: Causes of Wheel Misalignment

When properly aligned, all of your wheels are pointed in the same direction. Your vehicle will track true and handle the way it is designed. Wilmington drivers often associate our wheels being “knocked” out of alignment with an event like a major crash, hitting a pothole, curb or some other object. While these can certainly take your wheels out of alignment, the bumps and bounces of everyday Wilmington driving take their toll on wheel alignment as well. Your car can lose alignment over time with just normal driving. When your wheels are out of alignment, the team of automotive professionals at PONTE'S AUTOCARE in Wilmington can return your wheels to the factory settings. Most owners’ manuals suggest an inspection every year or two.Give us a call.PONTE'S AUTOCARE2401 Concord PikeWilmington, Delaware 1980330

Automotive Tips from PONTE'S AUTOCARE: 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 Wilmington. 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 PONTE'S AUTOCARE with expensive engine damage.Ask your friendly and professional PONTE'S AUTOCARE service advisor when your timing belt is scheduled for replacement.Give us a call.PONTE'S AUTOCARE2401 Concord PikeWilmington, Delaware 1980330
