Here at Quick Lane Livonia we like to help drivers in Livonia avoid costly automotive repairs. One of the ways to prevent repairs is to learn how to spot worn belts and hoses on your car. These components can often be replaced before they fail.

Belts and hoses are found on multiple systems on your car or truck. They help deliver water to and from the cooling system, and they also allow the alternator to turn and charge the cars battery. Many belts and hoses are visible to the eye when you lift the hood. You may be able to spot damage.

Belts will start to fray around the edges when worn. Hoses may develop a bulge in areas. You may also notice the presence of a leak when hoses are compromised. When you see that a hose or belt needs replacing, a trip to a service center may help you avoid more serious damage to your car.
