When you inspect your vehicle, it is important to check the belts and hoses to make sure they are in good working order. The belts help the engine to run smoothly so the power can be dispersed throughout the vehicle. Serpentine belts, also known as drive belts, provide power in the operation of your A/C compressor, power steering pump, cooling fan, air injection pump, and more. Frayed or damaged belts might keep your vehicle from starting or cause the engine to overheat. Like the timing belt, the serpentine belt should be inspected every time you have your oil changed. The hoses should also be checked as there are several of them. These hoses transport fluid to different areas of your vehicle in order to power it. The radiator hose is responsible for transporting coolant, which regulates the engine's temperature. These coolant hoses include the upper and lower radiator hoses. Some cars include a bypass hose. Hoses provide a flexible connection for coolant flow between the engine, radiator, and heating block. Checking your radiator hose for leaks is important to keep your engine from overheating. Also, brake fluid travels from the wheel cylinder to the calipers through the brake hose. A broken brake hose can make it hard for you to stop your car, putting you and your passengers at risk. Changing your vehicle's worn-out brake hose will ensure your safety while on the road. Also, a leaky steering hose may be the culprit if you find it hard to steer your car or feel strange vibrations coming from your steering wheel. Inadequate power steering fluid may affect your vehicle's performance and compromise your safety.
