Many of the systems in your car are powered directly or indirectly through belts. Most of us have heard of the timing belt, and the problems it can cause if it breaks. Serpentine belt is another belt that can cause problems if not serviced in a timely fashion. Typically, the Serpentine belt drives and powers auxiliary devices such as water pump, alternator, air conditioning compressor, etc. Belts are under lots of stress, high temperatures, and possibly chemicals that can over time weaken the belt structure. Time takes its toll as well.
Hoses also grow brittle with age. Your vehicle has multiple hoses that bring air and fluids to various systems in the vehicle. They too should be checked regularly.
At Adams Autoworx Albany, we provide a full range of automotive services and repairs, including digital vehicle inspections with every service or repair – and during the inspection we do check the belts and hoses.
