Dayco launches “Spring Preventive Maintenance Parts Giveaway” on Facebook

Parts manufacturer, Dayco, will give away one set of all parts it manufactures for one vehicle to raise awareness of National Car Care month, an initiative by the Car Care Council.

Dayco has announced it will give away one set of all parts it manufactures for one vehicle as part of its "Spring Preventative Maintenance Parts Giveaway" on Facebook.  

The month of April is recognized by the Car Care Council as National Car Care Month, a time to remind motorists to have preventative maintenance procedures completed on their vehicles.

The Car Care Council provides motorists with 10 procedures to follow during spring preventative maintenance season, including checking for wear on vehicles’ belts and hoses.

“The spring season is the perfect time for preventative maintenance, whether the vehicle-owner uses a shop or completes the work themself,” said Robert Christy, director of marketing for the North American Aftermarket Division of Dayco Products. “And serpentine belts are one of the most overlooked maintenance items on vehicles. This contest will give one driver the chance to replace those parts before failure causes additional repair issues and higher costs.”

With the help of the Car Care Council’s annual vehicle check-up events held every spring and fall, Dayco has found that one in every five vehicles on the road has a serpentine belt that needs replaced, and 80 percent of all belt failures happen on vehicles with over 85,000 miles.

The Spring Preventative Maintenance Parts Giveaway on Facebook will run April 15, 2013 – April 30, 2013. To become eligible, interested parties must follow three steps:

  • “Like” Dayco Products on Facebook (
  • “Share” the Contest Status Update on Facebook
  • “Comment” to tell Dayco why replacement parts are needed

One lucky winner will take home one of every available part Dayco manufactures for their vehicle, including timing products, belts, tensioners, idler pulleys and automotive hoses. To find out what parts are available for your vehicle, visit or download Dayco’s VIN Scanning App at
