Belts and Hoses
The belts and hoses in your vehicle may look unassuming, but they power nearly every feature in your vehicle. Hoses deliver hydraulic pressure to your brakes and other components. Belts transfer energy from the crankshaft to the moving parts that start, steer, heat, and cool your vehicle – not to mention keeping your engine cranking correctly. A leaky hose or loose belt can impact the performance of the affected part. A broken belt or hose can disable your vehicle.
So head to Midas at the first sign of damage to your belts and hoses. Better yet, trust Midas with your regular vehicle maintenance routine. We’ll take an expert look at your belts and hoses with every Midas Closer Look Vehicle Check™1.
There are several types of belts in a motor vehicle:
- Serpentine belt and other drive belts: Powers your alternator, climate control, and power steering with energy from the crankshaft.
- Timing belt or timing chain: Helps turn the camshaft of your engine, coordinating the rhythm of your engine valves and pistons. Also known as a gilmer belt or camshaft belt.
- Other automotive belts: Alternator belt, fan belt, power steering belt, A/C belt, and more. These belts work with your serpentine belt to drive their respective parts.
- Midas Closer Look Vehicle Check™ includes visual checks of brakes, battery, air filter, fluids, belts, and hoses.↩
