Know When to Go
Though it’s not common to include belt and hose inspections with your regular maintenance routine, you should still get a technician to take a look at them about every 3,000 miles, or when you get your oil changed. Of course, if you notice issues with driving or performance, you may wish to bring your vehicle in sooner. For example, you may need belt and hose repair if you notice vibrations, overheating, or reduced power. In addition, you will want to be aware of any strange noises like grinding or screeching and you will want to be aware of any times your vehicle slides or catches. Since belts and hoses are made from rubber and other soft materials, they need to be inspected regularly in case they swell, burst, split or crack, potentially causing leaks.
