BELTS AND HOSES
Did you know that sooner or later your vehicle’s engine accessory drive belts and coolant hoses will dry out and crack? Over time, belts and hoses lose their ability to properly expand and contract and belts and hose fail from the inside out. This can mean a lot of money spent to repair your vehicle.
Rubber hose (which are actually made of neoprene and other synthetic materials) deteriorate with age and exposure to heat. The hose material can become hard and brittle. Tiny cracks develop in the rubber which eventually cause the hose to split, blister or leak. Oil on the outside of coolant hose can also accelerate the breakdown of the hose material. This type of deterioration can usually be seen on the outside.
