Warning Signs of Failing Car Belts and Hoses

Pay very close attention to the health of the belts and hoses in your car and you could avoid them failing and leaving your car overheating on the roads.

The radiator hoses have to allow engine coolant to move through parts like the block, radiator, and water pump. Pay very close attention because the hoses do give signs when close to failing. These signs can range from cracks or splitting of the rubber, or bulges and soft spots.

The belts on the engine power parts like the fan or water pump. The belts will be close to failure if they are frays or are cracking. You can also hear the belts are close to failing when a loud squealing occurs when the engine is running.

If you see any of these warning signs, bring your vehicle to Volvo Cars Annapolis so we can have a closer look at the belts and hoses.
