Belts and Hoses

Your car's belts and hoses are essential to the cooling, air conditioning and charging systems, and the engine. don't take these routine replacement intervals for granted because they can bread down and leave you stranded.

The timing belt keeps the crankshaft and camshaft mechanically synchronized to maintain engine timing. Whether serpentine, V-belt or fan belt (the belts on the outside of the engine), they all transmit power from the front of the engine to accessories that need to be driven, such as the air conditioning, the charging system and fans.  radiator and heater hoses carry coolant to and from the engine, radiator and heater core.

Are You Aware?

The chances of a drive belt failure rise dramatically after four years or 36,000 miles for V-belts and 50,000 miles for serpentine belts.
