Timing Belt Replacement in Santa Cruz, CA

Timing Belt Replacement in Santa Cruz, CA - Water Star Motors

Timing belt replacements are an essential preventative maintenance service our incredibly capable and qualified auto mechanics at Water Star Motors provide for customers in the Santa Cruz area. A caring shop does this for its customers, rather than expose them to the risk of a timing belt breaking while driving somewhere, leading to an expensive tow and a more costly auto repair.
The cost to replace a timing belt for preventive reasons varies between vehicle make and models. Always replace your water pump and crankshaft seal at the same time. These components usually are as worn as your timing belt and it will save you money by not going into the same area again later.  Expensive? Perhaps. But did you know replacing a broken timing belt can easily become double that expense, or more. The break can cause damage to your vehicle’s engine valves, pistons, water pump or other dependent components!

The expert team of ASE-Certified auto mechanics at Water Star Motors —  certified as Master-Level Technicians — have years of experience and they continually update their knowledge and skills with the most up-to-date training to remain service-ready as vehicle technology and associated service procedures evolve. AAA-certified service center, Water Star Motors delivers outstanding vehicle care to Santa Cruz area motorists. From preventive maintenance, such as timing belt replacement service, to more complex auto repair, we back vehicle services with our nationwide 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.

Water Star Motors’ customers recognize the outstanding service, repair competencies and unparalleled service-readiness our auto mechanics and service advisors deliver.

We value making a difference in our customers’ lives and appreciate their affirmation and 5-Star reviews like this: 
“I drove all the way from Hollister (1 hour away) to get my car fixed at Water Star because they really are the most dependable auto repair shop. My 93 Nissan needed some major repairs, and I was not going to take a chance with anyone else - even for the convenience of proximity. Their track record is solid! My old Honda almost made it up to 300,000 miles with Water Star's help. I truly believe these guys can keep my Nissan running for at least another 100,000 miles!” -- Justin K.
