Why is the maintenance of belts and hoses so important ?
Your vehicles belts and hoses play an extremely important roll in making sure that your vehicles cooling, electrical components and engine timing are all functioning properly.
Belts and Hoses are some of the most vulnerable components in your vehicle, here are some contributing factors :
Over exposure to weather conditions
Wear and tear
That’s why regular inspections are so important. Here are the belt and hose types in your car, along with their applications.
Accessory Drive 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:
Water Pump for engine cooling
Radiator Cooling Fan
Power Steering Pump
Late model cars often use a single serpentine belt to repair individual belts to drive these accessories
Hoses circulate your car’s fluids from their pumps to appropriate areas of need, the hoses are often made of two layers of rubber with a layer of fabric in between. Here are some examples of hoses you may find in your vehicle :
Radiator and Heater Hoses – These hoses circulate 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.
Timing belts are a regular part of maintenance as per your vehicles manufacturer recommendation’s. Most vehicles timing belt service are recommended around 90,000 miles, but referring to OEM maintenance schedule is recommended. Servicing your timing belt and components like tensioners, pulleys and in some cases water pumps will provide you with confidence as your vehicle crosses over in to the 100,000 mile range.

These guys live up to the 5 stars. Had a problem with my O2 sensors in my exhaust. This was my first time there as I'm new to the area. They were very up front about everything. Showed me the computer scanner readout that pinpointed the problem and talked to me about resolutions. Ran into some complications, so they took my car over to a trusted muffler place of theirs. They drove it over and back for me! Felt like a VIP. Above and beyond service. My car has a new auto home for service. It's Feldman.
I've been bringing my 3 vehicles to Feldman Auto for a couple of years. I have found them to be honest, reliable and fairly priced. The vehicle is done when they say and they make sure that I'm completely satisfied. I highly recommend them.
These are your guys...we were traveling north and had major electrical issues on our 2004 Toyota truck. They got us in and out in less than 3 hours with an amazingly fair price. We sat in their office with our dog waiting and saw how fair and honest they spoke with everyone that came in and to each other. It’s a shop, not a fancy hangout, but the work’s right and fair!
I went to Firestone and they told me I needed new front brake pads and rear cylinders and that it would cost 850. I called Feldman and they said the same work would only cost 500. So I dropped my car off and when I came back the next day it turns out Firestone was wrong (probably lied) and my rear cylinders were fine, just needed front brakes. So Feldman was honest and it ended up only costing me 315.
WOW, is all I really need to say. Totally impressed and now have a regular mechanic. I called and got estimate for my brakes as I had serious problems. Gave me an estimate over the phone instantly. I took my car in the next day at 8 a.m and dropped it off. Came back around 9 a.m to wait on it. I went to the waiting room and was informed my car was completed and ready. 1 hour for a brake job and the estimate was pretty much dead on, due to taxes etc. By all means, use this garage! I will be going back for all my repairs!
