The importance of maintenance of belts and hoses

Overheated engine, loss of the electrical charging system, or loss of power steering can all result from belt or hose problems. As a hose leaks coolant or when a belt turning the water pump snaps, the cooling system will shut down. Serious internal damage can be caused by overheating and result in the need for expensive repairs. Engine overheating can occur anytime, but it can be especially problematic during the high temperature summer months, and lead to deterioration of rubber compounds. Regulation inspection of belts and hoses will head off weaknesses and problems before trouble strikes.
