Santa Cruz Timing Belt & Brake Repair

Water Star Motors, Inc. knows that your car is a big part of your life. In the last century, cars have developed from a rare luxury item to being basic necessities for day-to-day life. Whether cars, trucks, vans, SUVs, crossovers, hybrids, buses, or service vehicles, we mostly depend on vehicles as our means of transportation.  It is important to keep our vehicles in good condition because we depend on them so much. All automobiles, no matter how well constructed, require regular maintenance and repair on the timing belt and brakes.

The timing belt is connected to the camshaft of your engine.  As the belt turns, it turns the camshaft which opens and closes the valves of your engine.  If the timing belt slips, the valves may not open and close correctly which could severely damage an engine.  Depending on the type of vehicle, a timing belt may need to be replaced sometime between 50,000 to 90,000 miles.  To find out when your vehicle's timing belt should be changed, check your owner's manual or call Water Star Motors, Inc. for more information.

Brake repair and service is vitally important for your safety.  Over time, the friction which occurs when you apply your brakes, wears down the brakes.  If the brakes are not carefully serviced and maintained, your vehicle may not stop when needed.  To prevent this catastrophe, Water Star Motors, Inc. can inspect, service, & repair your vehicle's brake system. After a careful inspection of the brake pads, rotors, shoes, & hydraulics, we will let you know if there are any dangerous issues that need to be repaired and, with your permission, fix those issues.
