What Hoses and Belts Do You Need to Check in Your Vehicle in BC, Canada?

(Posted on Jun 17, 2021 at 02:00PM by Josh Lew)
<a href=""><img src="/images/upload/Mobile-Service-02.jpg"alt="A mechanic opening the hood of a red vehicle"/></a>A loose hose or cracked belt can cause a major issue for your vehicle, but these components often get overlooked. Here are some of the most essential ones to check during routine maintenance. 

Timing Belt

The timing belt is made of high-quality rubber and connects the crankshaft to the camshaft. If it breaks, your engine will immediately stop working. Be sure to inspect this component often for cracks and other signs of wear. 

Serpentine Belts

These belts transmit energy from the engine to the cooling fan, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, and other essential elements. They are made of high-quality rubber, but they can wear out after a while, so be sure to have yours checked by a service centre professional every 60,000 kilometres.


Hoses connect to different components, such as the heater, radiator, fuel lines, power steering, and brakes. These are typically made of rubber and should be checked by a mechanic every 60,000 kilometres for signs of wear or leaks, which could lead to a complete system failure.

To schedule an appointment to get all these vital components inspected, contact our service centre today.
