Checking Your Belts & Hoses for Problems

February 14,2020

If your belts and hoses have issues, you will definitely notice a change in your car’s performance. There are mainly three components to check if you notice overheating, screeching, or vibrating. These include your timing belt, serpentine belts, and coolant hose. The timing belt ensures that your engine’s components, such as the camshaft and crankshaft, sync up properly. Your serpentine belt controls your power steering. Coolant hoses bring antifreeze to your radiator so that you can turn on your air conditioning and cool down your cabin.
When these belts and hoses start to degrade, your car will let you know. The most common warning sign is a screeching belt that needs to be replaced. However, leaky hoses may need to be checked by a professional, as you may not even notice a crack that has started to leak chemicals on other components in your engine.
Have you seen some warning signs that your belts and hoses are damaged? We can check these out for you with a quick service appointment at our Vancouver, BC location. At Marine Chrysler Dodge Jeep RAM, we aim to help customers quickly and affordably with all of their repairs and replacement parts.
