Each time your oil is changed, it is important to inspect your drive belts and hoses and have them replaced as needed. Heat and wear causes small cracks in your belts and hoses. These cracks can lead to bigger problems if left unnoticed. If you hear slapping or high pitched squeaking sounds coming from your engine, it is time to have a Weber Automotive experienced technician determine where the problem exists before a minor problem leads to a major breakdown...and more expensive repairs.
Weber Automotive offers complete automotive belt and hose repair services at our auto repair shop in North Olmsted. Our team of ASE Certified auto mechanics understands that the belts and hoses in your vehicle play an important role for the proper operation of the engine, air conditioning, charging, and cooling systems in your automobile. Failure to adhere to the manufacturer recommended replacement schedule can result in your car breaking down and leaving you stranded.
Some of the belts we repair and service that keep your vehicle operating smoothly are the serpentine belt, fan belt, drive belt (V-Belt), and timing belt. The timing belt is used to maintain the synchronization necessary for the camshaft and crankshaft to maintain the timing of your engine.
Power is transmitted from the front of the engine to various vehicle accessories, including the air conditioning and charging system by the serpentine belt, V-belt, and fan belt. Coolant fluid is passed through the engine, radiator, and heater core using the upper/lower radiator hoses and heater hose.
Timing belts are not used in all automobiles. The serpentine or drive belts are sometimes used exclusively by a vehicle to provide all the power necessary for its accessories. Other vehicles use a combination of the serpentine and V-drive belts to power vehicle accessories.
Various driving conditions can contribute to the wear and tear of your vehicle's belts and hoses. Some of these include the age and mileage of your car or truck, the tension of your belts; hose clamp failure, contamination from oil, and electrolytic corrosion.
Symptoms that you might be having problems with your belts or hoses include:
