Belt and hose service

PROTECT YOUR VEHICLE’S ESSENTIAL COMPONENTS

Vibration, contamination and exposure to heat make belts and hoses wear out faster than any other components in your car. That’s why regular inspections are so important. A belt or hose failure can cause an overheated engine, loss of power steering or loss of the electrical charging system. If you suspect a worn-out belt or hose, don’t wait to bring your vehicle in.

Get in the habit of looking under the hood

We recommend visually inspecting your engine belts every 3 months or 3,000 miles and hoses every 6 months or 6,000 miles for signs of wear and tear like cracks, fraying or nicks.

Watch out for overheating

Pay extra close attention to belts and hoses during the summer, when hot temperatures can accelerate deterioration of rubber compounds.

We provide scheduled maintenance for your car or truck. Stay on track with our auto service team!
Understanding belts
While some accessories in your car are electrically powered by the charging system, others use the engine itself as their power source. The power for these accessories is delivered by a system of pulleys and belts. Examples of these accessories include:

Alternator

Water pump for engine cooling

Power steering pump

Radiator cooling fan

Understanding hoses
The hoses that convey your car’s fluids are made of two rubber layers with a layer of fabric in between. Typical hoses include:

Radiator and heater hoses, which convey coolant to the engine

Fuel hose, which transports gas from the tank to the engine

Power steering hose, which connects the power steering pump to the steering gear
