We Can Provide a Timing Belt Change
Your vehicle’s timing belt keeps your engine’s camshaft and crankshaft moving at the proper rates, which is key to the engine working properly. Timing belts naturally wear down over time, and you can consult your car’s manual to see when the manufacturer recommends replacing the belt. It’s wise to replace the belt before it snaps, as that can cause damage to your car, lead to accidents, and make it difficult to bring your car in. It’s much less expensive to replace the belt when it’s wearing down, rather than risking it breaking. You can check your timing belt yourself, it’s located near your engine, often with a cover. If your belt is cracked, frayed, discolored, or otherwise seems worn, then you should take your car to the professionals at German Auto Repair and take care of a small problem before it becomes a big one.
Your Timing Belt and Water Pump Could Need Service
Timing belt replacement can be a tricky process to attempt a DIY procedure on. Belts and their positioning can vary from car to car, and you risk damaging the engine, which means you would end up having to pay for costly repairs. You can avoid this by coming to German Auto Repair, where we’re more than capable of taking care of all your auto repair needs.
Your water pump keeps your vehicle operational by moving the coolant through the engine block, radiator, and other parts of your car to keep them at the optimal temperatures. Like other parts of your car, it will wear down over time and need repairs. There are a few ways to tell that the time has come to check your water pump:
- Leaking coolant, typically red or green, near the front of your car
- Engine overheating, as shown by your engine’s temperature gauge
- Rust on the pump’s surface
- Whirring sound when your car is running
- Steam emanating from your radiator
If you’re near Rolling Meadows, IL and notice any of these signs, take your car to German Auto Repair. Delaying repairs to your water pump may result in needing to replace it entirely, which is a more costly operation.

Get Your Coolant Replacement Scheduled Today
In addition to timing belt changes and water pump replacement, we’re also happy to offer coolant replacement! Coolant keeps your engine’s temperature down in the dog days of summer and warms it in the dead of winter. As with many fluids in your car, coolant can degrade over time. With age, coolant becomes more acidic and can cause unnecessary rusting and corrosion to your car’s parts. Check your vehicle’s handbook to see when to replace your coolant, and when the time comes, bring it to us. You should also get your coolant flushed if it appears clouded and/or discolored, or if you experience any issues with your car overheating or failing to start in cold weather.
