Toyota Highlander Engine Belts at Coos Bay Toyota near North Bend, OR 97459

Components in a car wear out eventually; it is something that is simply inevitable. But the service team at Coos Bay Toyota near North Bend, OR 97459 can make things work better and last longer with regular maintenance, and also by replacing certain parts in a timely manner. Engine belts are a part of your Toyota Highlander that you don’t think to have serviced regularly, but can seriously affect the performance of your car. Here at Coos Bay Toyota near North Bend, OR 97459, our Service Department technicians will check your Toyota Highlander engine belt for wear and tear and also let you know if it’s time to replace them.

The engine belt, also known as a serpentine belt, connects your engine to other parts of your Toyota Highlander, such as the alternator, air-conditioning compressor, the power steering pump, and water pump. Needless to say, if your engine belt should fail, all these connected parts that require the engine to power them would cease to function, making your vehicle inoperable. This is why it is very important to pay close attention to your belt’s wear-and-tear. Signs like cracks, fraying, or stretching are usually good indicators that it is time for a replacement.

On older vehicles, engines had multiple belts for each individual powered component, which not only took up more space, but was also less efficient. As each belt would wear down differently, vehicles would experience inconsistent or compromised performance. Having replaced multiple belts with a single serpentine belt that winds around all pulleys reduces slip, increases belt life, and decreases the load on the engine, which in turn contributes to improved fuel economy. A single engine belt also means that it is much easier to maintain and replace. Be sure to schedule a service appointment for a professional assessment of your engine belt’s condition here at Coos Bay Toyota near North Bend, OR 97459.

Another thing to keep in mind when it comes to Toyota Highlander engine belts is that even though this component may not be to be replaced just yet, it can still need adjustment or tightening. The serpentine belt may need to be manually tensioned, or may come with hydraulic or spring-loaded tensioning. In case of the latter, these self-tensioning mechanisms may still require servicing from time to time to keep them in optimal condition. On average, a serpentine belt will last between 60,000 to 100,000 miles without needing to be switched out.

Now that you know the importance of having the engine belt checked, make sure you pay us a visit at Coos Bay Toyota near North Bend, OR 97459 for our Toyota Highlander engine belt service and replacement. With our professional technicians and authentic replacement parts, your vehicle is sure to roll out smoothly from our garage.
