Our internal engine services include:

Belts & Hoses
Timing belts and serpentine belts are the most common types of belts in trucks.

A timing belt (also referred to as the camshaft drive belt or the Gilmer belt) is a notched belt that allows the crankshaft to turn the camshaft. Failure of the timing belt would lead to failure of the engine. A loose timing belt could lead to its slipping. When slipped, valves will open at the wrong time putting them at the risk of being struck by the pistons. To avoid this, have your timing belts inspected and serviced regularly.

A drive belt transfers power from the engine to the front mounted accessories such as the cooling fan, power steering pump, air injection pump, the air conditioning compressor and more. Failure of the drive belt means that all the engine accessories it's powering will stop working leading to overheating of the engine. To prevent this from happening, have the belt regularly checked for wear, cracks and stripping.

Hoses (or coolant hoses) are the heater and radiator hoses (upper and lower). The hoses facilitate the flow of coolant between the radiator, engine, and heating block. Old and worn out hoses can easily burst resulting in an overheated engine. To prevent this from happening, have the hoses inspected for cracks.

For belts and hoses maintenance and replacement services, visit Art's Family Auto Repair in Phoenix, AZ 85021 today. Remember, working belts and hoses will lead to a properly working engine.

Cooling System
Although a truck's engine operates most efficiently at high temperatures, the surplus heat produced during combustion can damage engine parts. To keep the engine safe from the surplus heat, trucks come with a cooling system. The system helps the engine maintain the required temperature and release any surplus heat to the environment.

The cooling system is made up of various parts that work harmoniously. These parts are the radiator, fan, pump, pressure cap, hoses, thermostat, and overflow tank. Failure of any of the parts will result in a poorly functioning cooling system.

To have a properly working cooling system (and thus a healthy engine), consider having periodic servicing of the parts that make up the system. At Art's Family Auto Repair, we can service or replace (if necessary) radiators, fans, water pumps, hoses, thermostats and pressure caps.

Diesel
Although diesel engines don't require tune-ups and tend to last longer than gasoline engines, they do require regular maintenance. Typical maintenance tasks include:

  • Changing the oil & filter
  • Changing the air filter
  • Changing the fuel filter
  • Bleeding the fuel system
  • Draining the water separators
  • Refilling the urea injection system
You can count on the experts at Art's Family Auto Repair to help your diesel engine last a long time.

Engine
This is where your truck's combustion of fuel occurs. The ignition, which takes place in a combustion chamber, provides force to the pistons, turbine blades, or a nozzle. The engine provides power that drives your truck. With a poorly operating engine, you will have a poor performing truck. Visit Art's Family Auto Repair in Phoenix, AZ 85021 today, to have all your engine needs addressed. At Art's Family Auto Repair, we have engine specialists who will make sure you get the most from your truck's engine.

Exhaust
An exhaust system is a piping that directs exhaust gases away from the internal combustion engine to the outdoors. A truck's exhaust system is made up of one or more exhaust pipes. An exhaust system can be modified to increase engine power (and performance), reduce pollution, or reduce noise. Also, a properly operating exhaust system is required for operator safety.

To get the most from your truck, you need regular exhaust service. For exhaust repairs, exhaust modification, or exhaust replacement, call 602-997-2006 or visit Art's Family Auto Repair today.

Water Pumps
A water pump is a vital part of your truck cooling system. A water pump is a centrifugal pump that circulates fluid whenever the engine is running. A belt connected to the engine's crankshaft drives the pump. Water pumps have vanes that fling the fluid to the outside of the pump (using centrifugal force) where it can enter the internal combustion engine. After going through the engine and the cylinder head, the fluid flows back to the water pump.

If the water pump develops a leak or the hub becomes loose and noisy, you need to have it replaced. Faulty water pumps will lead to poor cooling of the internal combustion engine. To have faulty water pumps repaired or replaced, call 602-997-2006 or visit Art's Family Auto Repair today.

What Our Customers Are Saying

Art is fantastic. He is fair and does awesome work.

reviewicon

I have been going to Art for over 10 years, my brother and sister have also used him. We have a Toyota Prius, and and Infinity. Art has done great work for us, he always makes room if we have an urgent need. He has found some things and told us "no charge." Some things he finds, but says it is good for now, will need to be fixed in another 10k miles. He is honest and a pleasure to work with.

reviewicon

We have taken both our vehicles and our motor home to Art's and the care and attention to detail that he and his crew have shown for our vehicles is exemplary. You never have to question what was done, as Art will show you the photos he took to explain the problem and show the solution. I recently brought my car into Art's for routine maintenance. While there, I mentioned to Art that when I turned my right turn signal on the dome light lit. He called within two hours to say that he could permanently fix the problem; the part would be close to $300.00, or I could turn the left blinker assembly knob, 1/4 turn towards me and everything would work perfectly. He was right and he saved me $300. We absolutely would not take our vehicles anywhere else. Art is efficient, work is done in a very timely manner, he is honest and treats customers as if they were family, giving the very best and at a fair price.

Excellent auto mechanics. Owner is caring, courteous, and honest. Pricey but honestly and stands behind their work. Highly recommend.

reviewicon

My other half took our car in for some work, and these guys saved us so much time, money and hassle. Gave us a straight price- no range, no guessing. No other shop would do that- we called 5. When something else popped up, he gave him every option. Tried to charge instead of automatically replace our battery to save us money. Friendly and knowledgeable. We'll never go anywhere else.

The best mechanics--honest, knowlegable and nice. So reasonable and timely. Trust them implicitly. Art explains everything thoroughly and shows you the "why" something needs fixing.
