Belts & hoses - more than you wanted to know
A series of belts and pulleys drive engine accessories such as the alternator, water pump, fan, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor and air injection pump. The timing belt maintains the precise synchronization required to keep the engine’s valves and pistons moving in sync. Hoses and steel lines transfer coolant, brake fluid and fuel throughout the vehicle. Over time, these parts may crack, rust or leak. So, protect yourself by following the factory maintenance schedule.
At Midas, we follow the manufacturers’ service guidelines for maintenance services, including belt and hose replacement. Our shops have access to factory maintenance schedules for most makes and models on the road. So, when you visit, ask us to provide your car’s schedule and print it out for your review. You can also find the factory recommended maintenance schedule for most vehicles on our website.
