Tips and tricks for auto care.
Components in your vehicle, such as the water pump and the power steering pump, rely on belts and hoses to sustain operation. Continuous exposure to heat, vibration, and harmful chemicals, can cause cracks and leaks; as a result, belts and hoses have the shortest life span compared with other parts in your vehicle.
Symptoms your belts and hoses may need service:
- Decreased gas mileage
- Engine squealing upon starting your car
- Hoses rot, become brittle, crack or split
- Belts become brittle, cracked or worn
- Noticeable fluid loss from under car
- Steam rising from engine
Our expert technicians will:
- Thoroughly inspect all belts and hoses
- When necessary install new, quality belts and hoses
- Check and fill all fluids

Why is it important to service belts and hoses?
Belt or hose problems may lead to a number of problems including an overheated engine, loss of power steering, or loss of the electrical charging system. When a hose leaks coolant or a belt turning the water pump snaps, the cooling system will shut down. Engine overheating may lead to serious internal damage, which will result in the need for expensive repairs. While overheating can occur anytime, it can be especially problematic in the summer months, when outdoor temperatures are high. Excessive heat can trigger or escalate deterioration of rubber compounds. Detect weaknesses and problems before trouble occurs on the road with regular inspection of belts and hoses.
