Maintain the Belts and Hoses to Protect Your Vehicle from Major Repair
You know that you need to maintain your vehicle to ensure that it will work for years to come, and there are a few belts and hoses that will likely need replacement during the lifetime of your vehicle. Belts and hoses serve a variety of purposes, and if they’re worn out, you could damage other parts of the car. Here are a couple of the most important types of hoses and belts that you should have checked.
Without the timing belt your vehicle won’t run, and if it breaks when the motor is running, you could damage your engine. The serpentine belt is another vital belt that, if it’s broken, the car won’t run. Finally, the coolant belts deliver antifreeze to different parts of the car, and if they’re brittle or cracked, the antifreeze will leak before it reaches where it’s needed.
