Not all warning signs of a bad belt or hoses can be seen with the naked eye. Belts can sometimes dry out severely, which can lead to a snapped belt, but it isn’t obvious at first glance. This is why it is important to have your vehicle’s belts replaced at the factory recommended interval. If a belt does break, for example the timing belt, this can cause damage to the engine that will be costly to repair. A leak from a hose can cause corrosion on major parts and lead to other issues.
Symptoms of a bad belt or hose include:
- Grinding noise while driving
- Lack of power
- Leaking fluids
- Vehicle “slipping”
- Vibrating while driving
- squealing noise at start up
