Be System Smart


Gates always recommends complete system repairs, whether your application is automotive or heavy-duty!

For Automotive System Repair: Think I60 & R90

The best way to prevent costly system failure is to start inspecting the serpentine, cooling and timing systems at 60K miles and replacing worn components by 90K miles, or as advised by the manufacturer. All parts in a system are engineered to work in concert and wear at about the same rate. When components wear, they put the entire system at risk. Replacing only the belt can potentially cause the entire system to fail. The best long-term investment is to Be System Smart with complete system repairs. Combine belts and tensioners, water pumps and hoses, and use timing component kits to ensure optimal vehicle function!

For Heavy-Duty System Repair: 

The best way to prevent costly system failure and unnecessary downtime is to start inspecting the serpentine, cooling and timing system every 6 months OR 5K miles OR 200 hours, and replacing worn components every 1-2 years OR 15K miles OR 400-800 hours, or as advised by the manufacturer. When components wear, they put the entire system at risk. Replacing only the belt can potentially cause the entire system to fail. The best long-term investment is to Be System Smart with complete system repairs. Combine belts and tensioners, water pumps and hoses, and use timing component kits to ensure you stay on the road and out of the shop!

Cuando los componentes se desgastan, ponen todo el sistema en riesgo. La mejor manera de prevenir costosas fallas en el sistema, es recordar la I-60 y R-90. Comienza inspeccionando los sistemas serpentín, del tiempo y de enfriamiento a las 60,000 millas, y reemplaza los componentes desgastados a las 90,000 millas o según lo aconsejado por el fabricante. Combina correas y tensores, bombas de agua y mangueras, y usa kits de componentes de tiempo para una completa reparación del sistema.

Kilometers: Think 100 & 150

The automotive Be System Smart message works in kilometers too! Prevent costly system failure by inspecting the serpentine, cooling and timing systems at 100,000 kilometers and replacing worn components by 150,000 kilometers, or as advised by the manufacturer.
