Why are Your Car's Belts and Hoses Important?

If your car did not have belts and hoses, it could not operate. Let's dig deeper into this important subject now. Under its hood, your car features an array of belts and hoses. Belts turn on pulleys and other parts and help motivate your car. Hoses move liquids and gasses throughout your auto's systems.

Time, heat and pressure can damage your belts and hoses, so keep up with your car owner's manual-recommended maintenance schedule. Also, you can look for signs that these parts need immediate replacement. On hoses, search for remnants of leakage. These could be wet liquids or dried residues. On your car's belts, check for worn teeth on the timing belt or cracking on the serpentine belt.
