Honest - 1 Auto Care - Hurst, TX On Your Serpentine Belt

Today we're going to be talking about serpentine belts for our HURST, TX, customers. Let's start by talking about the accessories that are driven by the serpentine belt. First is the alternator.

Automotive Tips from Honest - 1 Auto Care - Hurst, TX: Serpentine Belt System Wear

The primary job of the serpentine belt for HURST 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 HURST 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 Honest - 1 Auto Care - Hurst, TX service advisor can inspect your belt for excessive wear and replace your serpentine belt system if it’s excessively worn.

Battery Replacement at Honest - 1 Auto Care - Hurst, TX in HURST

  Today's focus is batteries. It seems like everything in HURST runs on batteries. Of course, the batteries we're most concerned with here at Honest - 1 Auto Care - Hurst, TX are those in our customer's vehicles. Just like the batteries in our smoke detectors or TV remote, they wear out and need to be replaced . This can be thought of as the power output used to start a cold vehicle engine.
