Contamination, usage, and lasting exposure to heat make belts and hoses wear out much quicker than any other components in your car. This is why regular inspections are so important. We will service and asses the quality of your tires and make a recommendation to you based on your preferences. Here are the types of belts and hoses in your vehicle, along with their applications.

Accessory drive belts:

Most of the accessories in your car are electrically powered by the battery’s charging system, while others use the engine itself as their power source. The power for these accessories is delivered by a system of pulleys and belts. Examples of these accessories include:

  • Alternator
  • Water pump for engine cooling
  • Power steering pump
  • Air conditioning compressor
  • Radiator cooling fan


The hoses that transport your car’s fluids are made of two rubber layers with a layer of fabric in between. Typical hoses include:

  • Radiator and heater hoses (Convey coolant to the engine and heater core.)
  • Fuel hose (This hose transports gasoline from the tank to the engine.)
  • Power steering hose (Connects the power steering pump to the steering gear.)
