Auto drive Belts and Hoses in Burlington, ON

Serpentine and other drive Belts are made to be tough. Time and temperature under the hood of your car has an effect though and these items may wear and break over time if left unattended. A belt that becomes worn may become glazed, brittle, or become so slack that it may not function correctly.

Hoses are often made from very similar material to belts and may also glaze and split after long years of use or when exposed to harsh temperatures. A damaged hose pipe may lead to vital fluids dripping from your engine and the resulting loss of fluid may cause damage to engine parts. A simple belt and hose inspection often prevents some of the most usual causes of breakdown and prevents any unscheduled breakdown. 

Why service is essential: Belts and hoses wear and will fail over time. To stop some of the most common reasons of failure, make certain your belts and hoses are examined at regular intervals and replaced as necessary.
