Belts and Hoses in Sacramento, CA
Belts can wear and crack eventually. A belt that becomes worn can easily slide or even come to be so slack that it may not function correctly. Hose pipes could glaze and crack after long years of use or when exposed to severe temperatures. A defective hose pipe could cause vital fluids dripping from your engine and can trigger damage to engine components. To avoid a few of one of the most typical reasons of failure, make certain your belts and hoses are checked at routine intervals.
Why service is important: Belts can wear and crack over time. To avoid some of the most common reasons of failure, make sure your belts and hoses are checked at regular intervals.
Automotive Belt Replacement in Sacramento
Ask your mechanic concerning belts and hoses if you see any kind of:
- Lack of power
- Screeching or grinding sound
- If you feel vibrations, 'slips' or 'catching'
It is suggested to have belts and hoses examined every 3,000 miles or with every oil change and replaced every 30-50,000 miles based on the make and model of your vehicle. A belt and hose pipe inspection checks for:
- Glazing, splitting, peeling and softening of belts
- Appropriate tensioning
- Proper drive pulley alignment
- Leaks and splits
- Hardening, fracturing and softening of hoses
- A cooling system pressure examination to help inspect for leaks
- Loosened or worn clamps
Timing Belts, Timing Chains, and Serpentine belts are the two main belts that enable your vehicle's motor to run properly. Replacing these at manufacturer recommended intervals can reduce engine ware and increase the life of your vehicles engine.
The timing belt, or timing chain depending on the make of the vehicle, turns the crank shaft and cam shaft inside the motor. Without this belt there is no valve timing to move the pistons which through a list of processes cause your car to move. If the timing belt or timing chain brakes due to ware the chances of bent valves, bent push rods, or a damaged piston is very possible. These type of injuries to your motor can be extremely expensive to repair or can result in having to have your vehicles motor replaced entirely.
