Parts in your vehicle, such as the water pump and the power steering pump, rely on belts and hoses to maintain operation. Prolonged and repeated exposure to high temperature, vibration, and damaging chemicals, can cause fractures and leaks; as a result, belts and hoses have the shortest life span compared with other parts in your vehicle. 

Signs your belts and hoses may need some help:

  • Hoses rot, become brittle, crack or split
  • Engine squealing when the car is started
  • Belts become brittle, cracked or worn
  • Obvious fluid loss from below car
  • Steam coming from the engine


Our expert specialists will:

  • Carefully inspect all belts and hoses
  • When needed, install new, high quality belts and hoses
  • Check and fill all fluids

If you think your car or truck may have a problem related to belts and hoses, let our trained technicians perform a complete inspection.  Contact us today to set an appointment.

The Importance of keeping your belts and hoses serviced


Belt or hose issues may lead to a number of problems including an overheated engine, loss of power steering, or loss of the electrical charging system. When a hose leaks coolant or a belt turning the water pump snaps, the cooling system will stop working. Engine overheating may lead to serious internal damage, which will result in the need for costly repairs. While overheating can occur anytime, it can be especially problematic in the summer months, when outdoor temperatures are high. Excessive heat can trigger or escalate deterioration of rubber compounds. Detect weaknesses and problems before trouble occurs on the road with regular inspection of belts and hoses.
