Our auto repair mechanics at Jefferson Auto Repair in West Orange, NJ understand the importance of belt and hose replacement. Belts control the engine’s crankshaft and camshaft. Hose move liquids and gasses throughout your vehicle. Belts and hoses are very commonly overlooked maintenance items and if not maintained, can leave you stranded on the road. Belts and hoses that are not well maintained can possibly cause engine failure, broken or ben valves, and possible piston and cylinder wall damage. Engines include belt accessories such as:
• Water Pumps
• A/C Pumps
• Air Pumps
• Power Steering
Hoses transport coolant, power steering fluid and fuel throughout your vehicle. Because hoses are made out of rubber, hoses are prone to dry rotting/fatigue. When the coolant is old, acid will build up in the fluid causing the hose to lose it’s strength resulting in bulges in your hose. This can lead to a large hose rupture that will render your vehicle not drivable.
A vehicle uses two types of belts, a timing belt and the accessory known as a serpentine belt. The serpentine belt is called serpentine because of the “snake-like” motion made around the pulleys in your vehicles engine. This helps to transport power to the components like the alternator, power steering pump, water pump AC and compressor. We recommend that you have your vehicle belts inspect every 10,000 – 20,000 miles or possibly replaced every 60,000 – 100,000 miles. A timing belt sis also known as the Cam Belt. Depending on the type of vehicle you have, it is highly recommended to change your timing belt every 60,000 – 100,000 miles.
