Car Belts and Hoses

The car engine is a complex piece of machinery, with dozens of pulleys, rods, and components all working in concert to keep your vehicle humming. One such piece is the timing belt, which coordinates the timing of engine shafts at the correct intervals, so the engine’s cylinders are functional. Without the timing belt, your engine parts won’t synchronize correctly. A professional should inspect this belt, along with other essential car belts and hoses, annually for wear and tear. We carry a wide supply of replacement parts in our Beaumont, TX, storefronts to fix this problem. If you hear any unusual noises when starting your car or while the engine is running, one or more of your car’s belts and hoses may have damage. Depending on how old your car is, it may require engine belt replacement. Modica Bros. are the Southeast Texas car repair professionals you can trust. Contact us today for an appointment!

What they do:
Belts may wear and break over time. A belt that becomes worn may slip or also become so slack that it may not function correctly. Hoses may 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 may create damage to engine parts.
Why service is essential:

Belts could wear and break over time. To stop some of the most common reasons of failure, make certain your belts and hoses are examined at regular intervals.

Ask your mechanic concerning belts and hoses if you observe any sort of:

  • Loss of power
  • Squealing or grinding sound
  • If you feel vibrations, ‘slips’ or ‘catching’

It is suggested to have belts and hoses checked every 3,000 miles or with every oil change. A belt and hose inspection checks for:

  •  Glazing, breaking, striping and softening of belts
  •  Proper tensioning
  •  Proper drive pulley alignment
  •  Holes and splits
  •  Hardening, splitting and softening of hoses
  •  A cooling system pressure test to help check for cracks
  •  Loose or worn clamps
