Dayco’s aftermarket division has launched a new timing belt kit with water pump program that includes a 125,000-mile warranty.
When a technician or a DIYer purchases a Dayco water pump or Dayco timing belt kit with water pump, they can register their purchase at aftna125k.dayco.com/125k/ to be covered for 125,000 miles (U.S.) or 201,000 km (Canada). This extended warranty is contingent upon installation according to the OEM service instructions, including flushing the cooling system and installing new coolant that meets OEM specifications.
Dayco says its comprehensive kits include:
- Gaskets made from high-density materials that retain bolt torque and prevent wicking.
- A roller bearing in the hub, which offers a more robust design than standard ball bearings.
- Silicone/carbide composite seals in the pump to prevent leaks for well beyond the life of the expected warranty.
- OE-quality technology built into the belt compounds, chords, as well as pulleys and tensioners.
Dayco’s timing belt kits with water pumps, as well as the stand-alone Dayco water pumps, are designed with 99% coverage for today’s domestic and import vehicles, the company says. The pulleys, timing belts and tensioners mirror Dayco’s OE solutions and each of the water pumps are assembled using Programmable Logic Control (PLC), providing quality data during the manufacturing process. Additionally, each water pump features 100% new cast aluminum or iron material and meets TS16949 quality standards, the company says.
