Automotive Belt & Hose Repair
Many driving conditions contribute to the wear and tear of vehicle belts & hoses. Age, mileage, tension, contaminated oil and corrosion can all lead to ruptures, tears and rips which should be repaired at the first sign of damage. Symptoms of a belt or hose in need of repair include squeaking noises, coolant leaks, dashboard light warnings, engine overheating, A/C failure and more. A ruptured hose may lead to fluids leaking onto your engine and cause damage to other vital parts. Torn belts can eventually become so slack that they’ll cease to work entirely. It is important to fix these minor belt & hose repair issues before they lead to large replacement jobs.
Vehicle Belts & Hoses Replacement
If a belt or hose is too far damaged to repair, then it will need to be replaced. The most common belt replacements we deal with include serpentine belt, V-belt and fan belt, which are generally easy to complete and do not take much time. While vehicle belt & hose replacement is not a huge problem to complete, waiting until the damage got to this point could have caused other lingering issues. Depending on the extent of the belt or hose damage, our technicians will inspect the surrounding areas to ensure no other parts or components have been compromised.
As a precaution, vehicle belts & hoses should be checked regularly to prevent extensive damage to other parts of your car. Our experienced technicians can repair minor hose damage, as well as severe mechanical repairs to transmissions, electrical systems, head gasket, brakes and more.
