BELTS AND HOSES SERVICES

The belts in your vehicle’s engine are important components which function in sync with the water & power steering pumps, and alternators.

Belts and hoses degrade over time and can crack, split, swell or burst. It is important to check them at the regular intervals recommended by your vehicle’s manufacturer to avoid a breakdown from a broken belt, or hose failure.

FREQUENTLY ASKED BELT & HOSES QUESTIONS

  • When should I change my belts or hoses?

    It’s suggested that your vehicle’s belts and hoses be serviced between 35,000 and 60,000 miles.

  • How do hoses go bad?

    Hoses are made of flexible rubber compounds to absorb vibrations between the engine and radiator, or, in the case of heater hoses, the engine and body’s firewall. They’re subjected to fluctuating extremes of heat and cold, dirt, oils and sludge.

    Acids and contaminants in the coolant can then weaken the yarn material that reinforces the hose. Eventually, pinholes can develop or the weakened hose may rupture from heat, pressure, or constant flexing.
