Pay Attention Signs of Trouble

Issues may be discovered during routine maintenance, but we recommend drivers pay close attention to glaring signs of trouble. These signs could be anything from vibrations, overheating, or reductions in power. You may also notice unusual sounds like grinding or screeching, or feel your vehicle sliding or catching.  Leaks may be easier to notice, and are a surefire sign of trouble. Belt and hose problems are more serious than other issues, because they’re necessary for moving all fluids to the components that need them, and keeping all systems in working order. Components degrade over time, resulting in swelling, bursting, cracking, and splitting. It’s necessary to maintain these parts to prevent major damage or system failures.

Ensure Peak Performance

The recommended interval for hose and belt inspections is every 3,000 miles, or with every oil change. This will ensure optimal vehicle health, and can easily be performed during other scheduled maintenance. Belt and hose replacements and inspections are detailed services. Our technicians check for:

  • Proper tensioning and drive pulley alignment
  • Belt glazing, fracturing, softening, or peeling off
  • Loose or worn clamps
  • Hardening, softening, or cracking of hose pipes
  • Splits and leakages
  • Pressure examination of cooling system
