Belts & Hoses Repair and Replacement Services in Easton
When you pop the hood of your vehicle, the first thing you are likely to notice is the maze of belts and hoses winding throughout your engine. While they may look unassuming, your car would not be able to run without their assistance. Belts and hoses are crucial components of the systems that steer, heat, cool, and move your car. A belt or hose that’s worn, too loose, or too tight can affect the performance of your vehicle. A belt or hose that is broken can disable your vehicle.
We understand that the condition of the belts and hoses in your car may be something you aren’t used to paying attention to. Here are some signs to look for that may indicate you have a problem with your vehicle’s belts or hoses.
- You hear chirping or squealing noises when your car is running. This sound could be the sound of a loose or damaged belt. It could also be an oil leak.
- You can see that a belt is loose or sagging. Most visibly loose belts will need to be replaced as that is a sign they are worn out. However, it could be a belt designed to be adjusted manually. Our technicians can help you figure out which it is.
- You can see signs of wear and tear on your belts and hoses. Belts should be free of cracks, or rib damage. If you see any of these signs, it’s time to take your car in for service.
