Star Automotive LLC is your best choice for preventative maintenance and repair, including replacing your car's belts and hoses. Your vehicle's hoses function similarly to arteries, transporting life-giving fluids to the areas that require it. Belts and hoses in your car have a variety of purposes, including timing belts and chains, and serpentine belts. If your belts and hoses aren't adequately maintained, you risk having a failure.

Belts deteriorate with time, and their cords can break, deflate, or burst. Hoses may glaze over time and split when subjected to extreme temperatures. The hose may leak fluids and cause engine damage, particularly if it has a hole or is broken. To prevent breakdowns, have our professional assess your belts and hoses to identify any warning indications or concerns.

Talk to your mechanic at Star Automotive LLC if you notice any:

  • Find any leaks
  • The vehicle becomes overheated
  • Lowering of power
  • Squealing or grinding sound

Experts recommend having belts and hoses checked every 3,000 miles or with every oil change. A belt and hose examination from Star Automotive LLC checks for:

  • Hardening, cracking, and softening of hose pipes
  • A cooling system pressure examination to help check for leaks
  • Worn or loose clamps
  • Peeling off or fracturing and softening of belts
  • Adequate tensioning
  • Appropriate drive pulley alignment
  • Leakages and splits

We recommend that you have your vehicle's belts and hoses checked at least once a year and more frequently if you live in an area with extreme temperatures or put a lot of miles on your car. If you need to replace any of your vehicle's belts or hoses, we can help. We carry a wide variety of belts and hoses for all makes and models, and our professional technicians can install them quickly and efficiently. Contact us today to schedule an appointment.
