Our internal engine services include:

Belts & Hoses
Timing belts and serpentine belts are the most common types of belts in trucks.

A timing belt (also referred to as the camshaft drive belt or the Gilmer belt) is a notched belt that allows the crankshaft to turn the camshaft. Failure of the timing belt would lead to failure of the engine. A loose timing belt could lead to its slipping. When slipped, valves will open at the wrong time putting them at the risk of being struck by the pistons. To avoid this, have your timing belts inspected and serviced regularly.

A drive belt transfers power from the engine to the front mounted accessories such as the cooling fan, power steering pump, air injection pump, the air conditioning compressor and more. Failure of the drive belt means that all the engine accessories it's powering will stop working leading to overheating of the engine. To prevent this from happening, have the belt regularly checked for wear, cracks and stripping.

Hoses (or coolant hoses) are the heater and radiator hoses (upper and lower). The hoses facilitate the flow of coolant between the radiator, engine, and heating block. Old and worn out hoses can easily burst resulting in an overheated engine. To prevent this from happening, have the hoses inspected for cracks.

For belts and hoses maintenance and replacement services, visit Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. in Smithfield, NC 27577 today. Remember, working belts and hoses will lead to a properly working engine.

Cooling System
Although a truck's engine operates most efficiently at high temperatures, the surplus heat produced during combustion can damage engine parts. To keep the engine safe from the surplus heat, trucks come with a cooling system. The system helps the engine maintain the required temperature and release any surplus heat to the environment.

The cooling system is made up of various parts that work harmoniously. These parts are the radiator, fan, pump, pressure cap, hoses, thermostat, and overflow tank. Failure of any of the parts will result in a poorly functioning cooling system.

To have a properly working cooling system (and thus a healthy engine), consider having periodic servicing of the parts that make up the system. At Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc., we can service or replace (if necessary) radiators, fans, water pumps, hoses, thermostats and pressure caps.

Exhaust
An exhaust system is a piping that directs exhaust gases away from the internal combustion engine to the outdoors. A truck's exhaust system is made up of one or more exhaust pipes. An exhaust system can be modified to increase engine power (and performance), reduce pollution, or reduce noise. Also, a properly operating exhaust system is required for operator safety.

To get the most from your truck, you need regular exhaust service. For exhaust repairs, exhaust modification, or exhaust replacement, call 919-934-2694 or visit Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. today.

Water Pumps
A water pump is a vital part of your truck cooling system. A water pump is a centrifugal pump that circulates fluid whenever the engine is running. A belt connected to the engine's crankshaft drives the pump. Water pumps have vanes that fling the fluid to the outside of the pump (using centrifugal force) where it can enter the internal combustion engine. After going through the engine and the cylinder head, the fluid flows back to the water pump.

If the water pump develops a leak or the hub becomes loose and noisy, you need to have it replaced. Faulty water pumps will lead to poor cooling of the internal combustion engine. To have faulty water pumps repaired or replaced, call 919-934-2694 or visit Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. today.

Engine
This is where your truck's combustion of fuel occurs. The ignition, which takes place in a combustion chamber, provides force to the pistons, turbine blades, or a nozzle. The engine provides power that drives your truck. With a poorly operating engine, you will have a poor performing truck. Visit Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc. in Smithfield, NC 27577 today, to have all your engine needs addressed. At Performance Tire & Auto Repair Center Inc., we have engine specialists who will make sure you get the most from your truck's engine.

Testimonials

  • They do a very thorough check of my car at each oil change to make sure there isnt any issues that I should be concerned about. It does take a little longer to check it over instead of just changing the oil and filter, but my peace of mind in knowing whats going on with my car is worth a few more minutes of my day. If there is a "list" of things my car needs they will let me know if any are safety related or if there maintenance related. I would rather know whats wrong rather than drive around thinking everything is fine when its not. Love the shop and the people. Highly recommend!

  • We brought our car here as a referral from another customer who had a good experience. The staff was excellent and went above and beyond to make sure the issue with our car was corrected. They did give us a list of other things that needed to be corrected with our car, which we found was very helpful. We were able to plan what repairs were needed and when to get them done. Never once did they try to push or sell us services. We are thankful for honest mechanics.
