All cars are now fitted with computers and a myriad of technology to run and monitor the internal workings of the vehicle. One of the most important functions these computers provide is ensuring your car is operating within the manufacturer's parameters; the engine, safety systems (ABS, Anti-Slip etc. etc.) are all operating correctly and safely. Most people usually only become aware of the functions of these computers when one of the fault warning indicators illuminates on the dashboard.

Damaged tyres may be illegal and can be dangerous. For peace of mind, call into Stockton Car Centre for some friendly expert advice and ask for your free tyre check.
Timing Belt & Chains
Manufacturer recommendations for changing these parts span from 40,000 to 150,000 miles depending on the make and model, we highly suggest replacing your timing belt/chain and water pump, at minimum, every 10 years.
It's generally advised to install a new water pump when your car's timing belt/chain is due for replacing. And the water pump replacement cost provided by Stockton Car Centre is just as competitive as all of our other services. In most cars, these parts are connected - with the timing belt propelling everything. Since the water pump supplies coolant to the engine, it's important this part is properly functioning.
As with any component, preventative maintenance is the best way to save you from costly damage in the future. An overheating engine can be catastrophic. Luckily, Stockton Car Centre offers top-rated service at the lowest possible cost. In keeping with our transparent pricing, if you don't need a new water pump, you won't be charged for one. You'll have the final say before any additional work is completed.
