Belts and Hoses

Posted on: June 6th, 2012 by sara

The maintenance of your belts and hoses is essential to the life and health of your vehicle. Both need to be inspected regularly to insure that that are wearing properly and if they are showing signs of excessive wear, it is important that they get serviced sooner rather than later.

Your vehicle’s belts are responsible for driving many accessories from the air conditioning, power steering, and water pumps in your vehicle. Proper belt tension and friction across these pulleys is essential for proper heating, cooling and ease of steering.
