Belts and Hoses

Complete inspection of the fan belts, belt tension components, radiator hoses, heater hoses, and rear heating systems on vans and larger SUV’s. Replacement and adjustment (where applicable) of serpentine belts, v-belts, radiator and heater hoses, and hose clamps.

Importance of Service

Belts on today’s vehicles (serpentine or v-belt style) are responsible for the operation of the alternator, water pump, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor and is some cases the radiator fan itself. Coolant hoses are responsible for the routing of hot coolant from the engine to the radiator were it is cooled and routed back to the engine to keep it at optimum operating temperature. Heater hoses are designed to take the hot coolant from the engine and route it to the heater core for purposes of heating the passenger cabin air and defrost operation.
