Serpentine Belt & Hoses
Replacing serpentine belts & hoses at the first sign of wear helps avoid unexpected breakdowns and engine failure. For example, leaking or ruptured coolant hoses can result in an overheating engine, damaged power steering hoses can cause loss of steering or a broken or worn-out belt can leave your vehicle inoperable and stranded on the side of the road. Most vehicles today have one or two belts that control all systems including the alternator, fan, water pump, power steering, air conditioner compressor, etc. At ServiceONE Automotive, our ASE Certified technicians will inspect all belts and hoses on your vehicle with every oil change. If a belt has more than four cracks in a one-inch section of the belt or if it begins to dry rot or become brittle, the belt should be replaced. Hoses should be replaced at the first sign of swelling, softness, cracking or hardening. Serpentine belt & hoses are a quick and affordable way to prolong the life of your vehicle.
