Servicing Belts And Hoses

Your vehicle has a number of different belts and hoses that allow the car to function in the proper way. These belts and hoses come in a number of shapes and sizes. What they all have in common is that they will eventually need to be replaced.

When you take your car in for regular maintenance, the service technician should check over your vehicle's belts and hoses. In between these times, you should be alert for any problems. If the belts or hoses look worn in any spot, you should take the vehicle in and have the belt or hose replaced. If you notice that any of the hoses that service the coolant system are leaking, get them replaced immediately.

As a general rule, the hoses should be replaced about every four years. Most belts should be replaced every 36,000 miles. The serpentine belt needs to be replaced about every 50,000 miles.

Are Your Brakes Working Properly

There are some signs that you hear in your vehicle that you should never ignore. When you start to hear a noise as you press down on the brake pedal, there are a number of noises that should alarm you. For example, if you hear screeching or grinding, then it’s likely you need to bring your car in to get some brake repairs. However, your brake light may also come on as soon as your pads show some signs of wear.

Brake systems are made up of shoes, rotors, calipers, and brake pads. These can start to warp once your brake pads are worn down. This is due to metal on metal grinding. If you notice any type of wobbling or vibration as you try to stop, this is probably due to your brakes warping from not having any brake pads.
