Exposure to heat, vibration and contamination can cause belts and hoses to wear. To prevent unexpected breakdown, regular inspections are suggested. Here are the belt and hose types in your car, along with their applications:

Accessory Belts

While some accessories in your car are electrically powered by the charging system, others use the engine itself as their power source. The power for these accessories is delivered by a system of pulleys and belts. Examples of these accessories are:

  • Alternator
  • Water Pump for engine cooling
  • Power Steering Pump
  • Air Conditioning Compressor
  • Radiator Cooling Fan
  • Many late model cars use a single serpentine belt in place of individual belts to drive these accessories.


Your hoses are what keep your fluids flowing! Made of two layers of rubber with a layer of fabric in between, over time these items can wear down and crack.

Radiator and Heater Hoses – These hoses convey coolant to the engine and heater core.
Fuel Hose – As the name implies, this hose transports gasoline from the tank to the engine.
Power Steering Hose – It connects the power steering pump to the steering gear.

  • Should I consider using synthetic oil?

    Synthetic engine oils are produced through a synthesis process that takes very small molecules and assembles them into larger ones. If your car specifically requires synthetic oil it is definitely something you should use. However, if your car does not specify synthetic, SAE oil is fine to run.

  • What parts should be replaced?

    General maintenance schedules vary manufacturer to manufacturer. For information specific to your make and model, please contact us directly.

  • How do I keep track of routine maintenance?

    Keeping your invoices handy is important to remember what work you have already done to your vehicle. If you visit our shop regularly, we can recommend services based on the mileage, age and condition of your vehicle.
