Belts & Hoses

Car Belts & Hoses Daytona Beach, FL Car belts and hoses are particularly vulnerable to wear and tear. Exposure to things like dirt, excessive heat, and regular vibrations can take their toll on these components. That’s why belts and hoses wear down much faster than other car systems. It is important to conduct a regular car belts and hoses inspection to determine what their condition is like.

At Blackstone Complete Automotive Repair, we encourage all of our clients in Daytona Beach, FL to get this inspection done regularly.

Accessory Drive Belts Inspection

Many accessories in your car take power directly from the engine to run. Belts and pulleys direct the required power from the engine to these components, which is why the condition of the drive belts is essential. The belts transmit power to systems like:

  • Alternator
  • Radiator cooling fan
  • Water pump
  • Power steering pump
  • Air conditioning compressor

Modern, sophisticated vehicles use a single serpentine belt to power all of these components instead of multiple ones. If the belts are in good condition, all of these components work well and will receive adequate power. If they are damaged, you will have to deal with compromised performance, poor fuel efficiency, and component damage. We conduct thorough belts inspections and replace all damaged belts to improve overall engine performance.

Car Timing Belt Replacement

You need to replace the timing belt of your vehicle once it has traveled a set amount of miles. Your car manual will provide information on this process, but you can also ask our experts when you need to change the belt. Our car timing belt replacement service is affordable and reliable. We will only recommend the change if your vehicle truly needs it.

Car Hoses Inspection

Hoses transport your vehicle’s fuel and oils to different components. When these hoses are in good condition, all of the fluids will reach their destination without issues. If the hoses are damaged, the fluid will leak and cause trouble.

These hoses are designed to be strong and withstand driving conditions. They have two rubber layers and a layer of fabric between them for additional protection. The different kinds of hoses include:

  • Radiator Hose – This will transport coolant fluid to the engine and heater core. The coolant helps maintain engine temperature at optimal levels and ensures it doesn’t overheat.
  • Fuel Hose – This hose transports fuel from the tank to the engine to keep it running. The car won’t work if this hose is damaged.
  • Power Steering Hose – This hose transports the power steering fluid from the steering pump to the gear.

Our experts will conduct a thorough inspection to determine whether there are any damaged hoses. They will then carry out the car hose replacement wherever needed to ensure there are no fluid leaks or similar problems.
