Understanding Belts and Hoses

Often overlooked, the hoses and belts in your engine are vital to its performance. Learn to note the signs of belt and hose wear to nip potential problems in the bud. As you become aware of issues and head them off early, you'll spend less money on repairs in the long run.

Most hoses and belts in your engine have a prescribed length of use and will need replacing after a certain number of miles. Your timing belt indicates it's near its end when your engine backfires or you notice that it has become frayed or worn. Coolant hoses will exhibit signs of wear like splitting or becoming brittle. Have these items replaced when you notice they're worn to avoid possible engine failure.
