Belts & Hoses: When to Go to the Mechanic

Heat exposure and cold temperatures can cause belts and hoses to wear down faster. In addition, excess vibration, contamination, and other moisture problems can create issues for your hoss. That’s why it’s so important to have your car inspected every 3,000 miles. Your car depends on your belts and hoses to keep important components running correctly.

The three main belts and hoses to check for damage include timing belts, serpentine belts, and coolant hoses. These are responsible for your alternator, water pump, power steering, air conditioning, and radiator. Without these belts and hoses, your car may start to make loud screeching noises or completely fail to start up.

If you notice any of these issues, you should have your car checked immediately. You can visit our location at Quick Lane Livonia to talk to an expert mechanic and get a quick diagnostic to reveal leaks and cracks in your system accessories.
