What You Need to Know About Belts and Hoses

Belts along with pulleys work engine accessories like the air conditioner compressor, air injection pump, alternator, fan, power steering pump, water pump and more. Hoses along with steel lines send brake fluid, coolant and gas through the vehicle.

Belt or hose failure can cause engine overheating, power steering loss, loss of the electrical charging system and more. The cooling system can be impacted too if a hose leaks coolant or the belt manipulating the water pump breaks.

Eventually your belts and hoses will crack and dry out. You can protect against expensive repairs and failures with regular inspections and the replacement of belts and hoses per manufacturer recommendations.
