The Importance of Belts and Hoses

Your vehicle operates through a sequence of belts and hoses. The engine wouldn’t be able to function without the timing belt to open and close valves and pistons in the cam and crankshafts. Without the belt that connects the engine and alternator, there wouldn’t be the charge needed to keep the system running.

If you’ve ever tried to drive a car without power steering, you know how difficult that can be, and that’s what it’s like when there isn’t a power steering pump. It’s one of the conveniences that, along with the air conditioning compressor, gets taken for granted. When one aspect of the system fails, it has a snowball effect on the rest of the operation.

You can see why keeping up with the maintenance of belts and hoses is so important. They wear out and crack with time and constant use. When you notice sounds that you shouldn’t, such as squealing, you should have your vehicle serviced. Stop in to our our service center at Jim Bass Ford Inc. in San Angelo. We’re here to help you with your concerns.
