There has been more articles written about timing belts on the internet than any other single engine part, yet it continues to be the single most destructive part of engines that use a timing belt. This week we had a beauty, car came in with a no start condition, after doing the basic checks, we discovered something I have not seen after over 40 years working on cars. The timing belt had disintegrated so bad, to the point where the debris from the timing belt accumulated at the bottom of the engine where it blocked the crankshaft sensor from being able to produce the signal to get the car started; what a blessing. This illustration shows what’s left of this timing belt. This customer just arrived in Gainesville for school, … Continue reading
“Berrisford Smith, owner of Smitty’s Auto Service, has found satisfaction and success since striking out on his own….” That was the caption under a large photo of Smitty standing in his shop, posing for The Gainsville Sun twenty-three years ago. A lot has changed since Smitty graced the front page of the newspaper’s Business & Careers section, but his sentiments remain the same. Smitty spent nearly a decade working as an Auto Technician for the then local VW Dealership before deciding to open his own auto repair service. Friends and family worried.

However your vehicle might not be making any kind of recognizable noise after turning the key. Either that or the above onomatopoeia fails to fully capture the … Continue reading
Anyone who shares a passion for motor vehicles, their inner workings, or even the convenience afforded to us by our cars, so basically everyone, can appreciate what an important year this is for Robert Bosch and his work. Bosch was a German engineer who, 125 years ago, established what he called the “Workshop for Precision Mechanics and Electrical Engineering” in Stuttgart, Germany. Since that time, Bosch has become the world’s leading automotive supplier. As the go-to import car mechanic Gainesville knows and loves, Smitty’s wants to tip their hat to Bosch and all he has done. Among the inventions and achievements that Bosch has accumulated a rather extensive list of, his first, a commercially viable high-voltage spark plug, still rates among his most important. It was with the advent of … Continue reading
