It is always important to bring your vehicle in for an inspection. This way we can inspect the parts and components for your vehicle. We can also check under the hood to ensure the belts and hoses are in proper condition. Without belts and hoses, the vehicle cannot operate.

 

If you notice any squealing or odd noises from under the hood, it could mean that the belts or hoses have become loose. Belts can become worn out with time and will need to be replaced. The same is true for the hoses, as they may develop a hole and start to leak when the vehicle operates. If a belt slips, it can do a significant amount of damage to the vehicle.

 

The hoses should also be checked on a regular basis. The hoses can start to wear down with age. There may also be an issue if there is a puncture mark in them. This can cause them to leak. The vehicle will not be able to run at top performance levels or efficiency. If you notice a fluid needs to be replaced more often, make sure to bring it in. Catching an issue at the first sign can help reduce the chance of further damage in the future. By bringing your vehicle in for regular inspections, you can help prevent an unexpected breakdown. If you are not sure how often to bring your vehicle in, we can advise you on a maintenance schedule. This can help you to have a safe and reliable ride.
