He?ll also compare your current alignment with the vehicle manufacturer?s settings.Your vehicle owner?s manual will have a recommendation for when to check alignment. Of course, this recommendation is based on normal driving. If you have been in a crash, hit a curb/pothole, frequently drive off-road around Greeley, or notice any symptoms of misalignment, have your Phil's Pro Auto Service service advisor perform an important alignment check.Phil's Pro Auto Service707 12th StreetGreeley, Colorado 80631970-353-2739http://www.philsproauto.com

Automotive Tips from Phil's Pro Auto Service: Serpentine Belt System Wear

The primary job of the serpentine belt for Greeley drivers is to provide important traction to spin the accessories. As the belt wears it loses some of its grip and the accessories may not spin at optimal speeds. For example, if your alternator doesn’t spin fast enough, the battery will not completely recharge while you’re driving and you could end up stranded around Greeley with a dead battery. In short, a worn serpentine belt will stress all of the accessories it powers leading to premature wear and possible early replacement. When as little as 5% of belt material is lost, the serpentine belt cannot provide the proper traction for the accessories. Your friendly and professional Phil's Pro Auto Service service advisor can inspect your belt for excessive wear and replace your serpentine belt system if it’s excessively worn.Give us a call.Phil's Pro Auto Service707 12th StreetGreeley, Colorado 8063197 ... read more
