Caring For Your Car's Belts and Hoses Is Essential for Auto Functionality
Belts and hoses are a part of your car's engine cooling system, its air conditioning system and its charging system. Belts and hoses are essential in maintaining the performance of your vehicle. Weathered hoses and belts with fractures or leaks can disrupt your car's systems, the systems that keep you comfortable while keeping your car running properly. You'll want to double check the radiator and heater hoses, along with the timing belt for splits and holes. If they are worn out, it's best to replace them prior to them getting worse. Should you hear a loud squealing noise, it could be a bad belt or an issue with your power steering system.
