Sometimes the smallest things can make the biggest difference. It’s easy to neglect your belts and hoses when it comes to maintenance—out of sight, out of mind—but they are some of the most crucial parts of your vehicle. It’s important to make sure these parts are in good condition to ensure your vehicle is functioning properly. Waiting too long to have your belts and hoses serviced can lead to major damage that could have easily been avoided.
Over time, your belts and hoses can weaken, crack, or break causing potentially dangerous problems for your car. Two of the most important belts are the serpentine belt and the timing belt. The serpentine belt drives all of the engine components, so if it loosens or breaks, then many other important components of your vehicle will fail. This includes your alternator, power steering system, and engine cooling system. If the timing belt breaks, it can cause severe damage to your engine that can be costly to repair.
Your vehicle’s hoses move coolant fluid from your radiator to your engine and return the overheated fluids back to the radiator and so on; they are primarily responsible for making sure your car doesn’t overheat. A leaking or damaged hose can lower the effectiveness of the process and cause your engine to run hot which will lead to costly damage if ignored.
An annual inspection by the trained professionals at Quail Corners Auto Care will help catch any damage before it can cause any major problems. Neglecting to have your belts and hoses checked on a regular basis can be catastrophic for your vehicle. Here are some signs that it’s time to have your belts and hoses checked or replaced:
