REPLACEMENT

Belts and hoses can crack, leak, or fray due to their constant exposure to heat, moisture, road debris, vibration, and harmful automotive chemicals.  If not maintained and replaced when necessary, it could mean a major auto repair bill, particularly if your expensive water pump or air conditioning compressor fails. Whether an inspection, routine service, or more serious auto repair is needed, Neighborhood Automotive can inspect your belts and hoses, as well as the systems they’re part of, inform you of what needs attention, and provide the correct solution.

Accessory Drive Belts:

While some accessories in your car are electrically powered by the charging system, others use the engine itself as their power source. The power for these accessories is delivered by a system of pulleys and belts.
Examples of these accessories are:

  • Alternator

  • Water Pump for engine cooling

  • Power Steering Pump

  • Air Conditioning Compressor

  • Radiator Cooling Fan

  • Many late model cars use a single serpentine belt in place of individual belts to drive these accessories.

Hoses:

The hoses that convey your car's fluids are made of two rubber layers with a layer of fabric in between.
Typical hoses include:

  • Radiator and Heater Hoses - These hoses convey coolant to the engine and heater core.

  • Fuel Hose - As the name implies, this hose transports gasoline from the tank to the engine.

  • Power Steering Hose - It connects the power steering pump to the steering gear.
