Belt and Hose

What is the service?
  • Low belt tension, contamination and belt vibration are common sources of belt noise. A screeching or squealing noise that occurs when pulling away from a stop normally indicates a lack of tension; check belt tension and automatic tensioners.

Why is the service recommended?
  • Belt(s): A broken or worn out belt can leave a vehicle inoperable
  • Coolant hoses: Leaking or ruptured hose(s) can result in an overheated engine or a vehicle breakdown

How does our service help?
  • A grinding noise can result from damaged bearings, which might need to be replaced, aligned and lubricated to eliminate the noise and further damage. Vibration and noise can develop over time as drive components such as pulleys and spring tensioners wear, bearings and brackets loosen, or belts wear and stretch.

Help avoid tow truck fees and/or engine repairs by periodically replacing belts and hoses.

Belts and hoses help ensure that your vehicle's components work together to operate smoothly and precisely. Belts need to be in proper condition, and hoses need to be flexible and sealed. Failure to replace worn belts and hoses could result in costly repairs. This automotive service comes with a service warranty.

Key Tip
Check condition of hoses at every oil change.* Replace belts every 30-60,000 miles

Estimated service time
1-2 hours.
