What is the Importance of Your Car's Belts and Hoses?

Whether you drive a car, truck or SUV, your model's engine comes fitted with a complex system of belts and hoses that help your vehicle perform on-demand. Not only do your belts and hoses keep your car running, but they also have important functions to complete. That's why it's important to repair or replace your auto parts as needed.

What function do your hoses and belts perform? The hoses in your vehicle help with the transfer of pressure and fluids from one component to another. The belts help to drive power to components including the air conditioning unit, cooling fan, power steering pumps, alternator, and more. When they break down, your car cannot run at its optimal level.

Like all auto parts, your belts and hoses will deteriorate over time. The temperature changes and excessive mileage can cause cracks to appear and you'll eventually start to notice problems with your performance, including overheating situations or total part failure. Contact the University Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram team to schedule maintenance on these vital components soon!
