Your vehicle has many different belts and hoses throughout that allow vital components to work together. Your vehicle’s belts can snap or break and hoses can crack and leak over time. Belts will naturally wear down over time due to regular use of your vehicle and hoses can be damaged when exposed to extreme temperatures. Regular inspections of your vehicle’s belts and hoses can help identify any belts that may be worn out or hoses that are corroded before they break and cause damage to your vehicle.

Belt and hose recommendations
At Simard Automotive in Fairbanks, Alaska, we recommend that your vehicle’s belts and hoses are inspected regularly to help avoid serious issues and to keep you safe on the road. Our certified technicians are experienced and specially trained to visually inspect and repair belts and hoses on all makes and models of vehicles.
The following symptoms can indicate an issue with a belt or hoses in your vehicle:
- Grinding noise while driving
- Lack of power
- Leaking fluids
- Vehicle “slipping”
- Vibrating while driving
A belt breaking or a hose cracking can actually cause your vehicle to stop working.
