What Hoses And Belts Do In Your Car And Why You Should Replace Them

We at Elk Grove Honda believe that all drivers in Elk Grove, CA should know how to and when their vehicle should be serviced for major repairs. A major service that every vehicle will undergo is the replacement of belts and hoses in the car.

The timing belt ensures that your engine runs smoothly by synchronizing the various parts that make the engine run. A worn timing belt that is frayed is a sign that it needs to be replaced with a new one. The serpentine belt is another kind of belt that connects the engine to other parts in the vehicle. If it is cracked, squeaking or splitting, then its time to get a new belt.

Coolant hoses move coolant throughout your vehicle and make sure the vehicle's engine does not overheat. They need to be replaced or else the engine will literally burn up. Cracking and splitting are a sign that they need to be replaced.
