Belts and Hoses: Small Repairs, Big Headaches

A modern car engine is a complex and highly-engineered piece of machinery. For most of us, our maintenance knowledge extends to getting the oil changed when necessary. However, there is much more to regular vehicle service than oil, and that includes belts and hoses.

At Jim Falk Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram here in Kahului, HI, we can take a look at your vehicle and see if it’s time to make the necessary repairs or replacements. Belts and hoses are the lifelines between most of your vehicle’s complex systems. They can carry fluid between different parts of the engine or drive different engine components.

Unlike many other engine parts, these are generally made of rubber or plastic and wear down over a period of time. When they do, major problems can occur, and while replacing a hose or belt can be relatively inexpensive, the problems they cause generally are not. So take a little time out of your day and come on down to our auto service department. You don't want a minor problem turning into a major headache.
