Belts & Hoses Warning Signs

Just like getting an oil change or replacing the air filter in your car, belts and hoses need to be checked and maintained regularly as well. A cracked, worn belt can produce screeching noises, but the real danger is for your engine and steering. Timing belts sync up your camshaft and crankshaft, so when it goes, your engine may backfire or not even start. Serpentine belts are also important because it could lead to a loss of power steering if not properly maintained.

Coolant hoses are another issue for older cars. These tend to crack or develop soft spots, which turn into leaks. Antifreeze leaking into your engine is a huge problem, which is why most cars get checked for coolant hose problems with every oil change.
