Belts and hoses are the unsung heroes of your car’s engine.
Though many people don’t realize it, belts and hoses keep fluids moving through the car’s system and gears turning. Without good quality belts and hoses, you may experience breakdowns that leave you stranded. What are some things to think about when considering whether your vehicle is in need of belt and hose repair?
There are lots of belts and hoses in your car. While you may think there are just a few belts – like the fan belt, for example – in fact, there are many belts and hoses that move brake fluid, rotate gears and move coolant throughout your car.
Belts and hoses are generally accessible. Changing belts and hoses is usually an easy job for our Akron Rad Air Complete Car Care & Tire Center service technicians. Remove a few clamps, remove the old hose and replace the hose and clamps. A quick test of your system and you are back on the road again.
A limited life span. Unlike other parts of your car, belts and hoses do wear out over time. Due to the fact that they are manufactured from rubberized materials, belts and hoses have a limited life span in your car. With wear and changes in temperature, belts and hoses can crack and leak.
