Why Regular Belt and Hoses Checks are Crucial

Automotive belts and hoses play a vital role in how your vehicle functions–but since they’re made out of rubber and are exposed to high temperatures, they can lose tension or become cracked or damaged over time. When belts become too loose, they can slip off of the pulleys and damage nearby components; not only is this unsafe, but it can cause expensive repairs.  Worn or cracked hoses can lead to fluid leaks, an overheating engine, and other issues that can put your vehicle at risk of damage or premature wear. 

For this reason, you should have your belts and hoses checked regularly for signs of damage or wear, and make sure to follow your manufacturer’s recommended replacement schedule. You can find these recommendations in your owner’s manual, or we’re happy to look it up for you. Some common signs you have a belt or hose that needs replacement include: 

  • Visible cracks in the ribbed portion of the drive belt(s)
  • A/C or power steering malfunctions
  • High-pitched screeching or whirring sounds during engine startup
  • Sudden vehicle breakdown
  • A burning smell
  • Warning lights illuminate

At Express Auto/RV Care Center, we believe in addressing small issues before they have the chance to compromise your safety or become a more significant repair. That’s why we take a proactive approach with your automotive belts and hoses and perform a courtesy inspection virtually every time you visit our shop in the Foothills.
