Keep Your Belts Well-Maintained at Accurate Automotive Attention
We offer complete service for timing belts, serpentine belts, and fan belts, as well as hose replacement. Since automotive belts and hoses are made out of rubber, they can lose tension and become worn or cracked over time. When this happens, they can slip off the pulleys and cause damage to nearby components, like the alternator, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump or even cause engine damage.
Worn belts are also at a greater risk of breaking, which could be dangerous if it happens while you’re driving, especially at higher speeds. When a serpentine belt breaks, it can cause complete component failure, overheating, and engine damage – which is why our technicians take a proactive approach, addressing small issues before they can lead to more expensive repairs.
We also offer a courtesy belt and hose check with virtually every service visit so we can check for signs of cracking, wear, and stripping. If we find any that need replacement, we’ll let you know what needs to be done and provide you with an estimate.
Some signs you may need a belt replacement includes:
- Visible cracks in the ribbed portion of the drive belt(s)
- Your A/C or power steering isn’t working
- A high-pitched screech or whirring sound when you start your engine
- Your car stops working all of a sudden
- Burning smell
- The starter won’t crank the engine
How often should your belts be replaced? That depends on the make and model of your vehicle. You’ll be able to find the factory recommendations in your owner’s manual, or feel free to give us a call, and our friendly service advisors can look up the recommendations for you.When you need a belt and hoses check in Yuma, give Accurate Automotive Attention a call!
