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 Skyline Automotive in North Little Rock, AR 72118 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 Skyline Automotive, 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 Skyline Automotive 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 Skyline Automotive in North Little Rock, AR 72118 today, to have all your engine needs addressed. At Skyline Automotive, 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 501-218-8666 or visit Skyline Automotive 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 501-218-8666 or visit Skyline Automotive today.

Definitely recommend - especially for European cars. Maciek at Skyline Automotive is a great mechanic - honest and professional. I purchased a Range Rover via an Internet auction and flew into Little Rock from South Carolina to take delivery of it. When I picked it up, it had a transmission leak and the transmission had also been overfilled by the prior owner. I needed to get on the road that day, and was lucky to have found Maciek through a referral by AAA. He quickly diagnosed and repaired the leak even fabricating a clamp that we needed to get me on the road that day. He checked the car over for us to ensure that we could make the 1000 mile drive. Our trip home was uneventful (mechanically speaking) and he even called me the next morning (Saturday) to check in to see if everything was OK. If I lived in Little Rock I would make this shop my regular mechanic.

This place is the only shop I trust anymore. I have dealt with a lot of shops in NLR and all of them have messed up my vehicles. These guys are not the cheapest but are worth every penny. They even redid the jerry-rigging by other shops. They kept the old parts so I could verify the issues and it runs great now. Even diagnosed codes my cheap reader and other shops couldn't. Highly recommended.

The owner of this went above and beyond to help me when he didn't have to. My truck ran out of gas right in his parking lot and he didn't hesitate to help me. First,he used two of his 10 gallon containers,2nd.he drove us to a store in his truck and helped me get it started,which is a diesel truck. 3rd. He pumped the air out of the lines and bleed them.
