Month of myths #4

Myth 4: Vehicle technology today is so advanced I don’t need to worry about emissions.  To help reduce emissions, keep your vehicle well maintained.

When this happens the costs will skyrocket and may lead to complete engine replacement. The cost to replace the timing belt varies greatly between ... read more
