If you've ever looked at your car manual, you might have seen that your manufacturer has recommendations on when you change certain belts and hoses. If you've never looked, you should take the time to read up on the recommendations before you have problems. You should also take your vehicle in to the repair shop to have it inspected by a professional mechanic at Hoffman Ford in East Hartford, CT to make sure your hoses and belts are in optimal working condition.

Belts become worn and frayed when they need replacement, and they can begin to slip. If your timing belt breaks when the motor is on, that can translate into serious damage to the pistons on the engine.

Hoses become brittle after many years of use, and a particular hose is responsible for transporting coolant to your radiator. If there's a hole in your hose, the coolant will run out of the hose, and you could have an overheated vehicle.
