A majority of car breakdowns these days are caused by breakdowns with belts, hoses, and cooling system. Modern cars run hotter than previous generations of vehicles, and all those moving parts are packed together more tightly than they have ever been before. Both belts and hoses are subject to damage from environmental factors and the passage of time. Belts and hoses can also crack or fray after long-term exposure to harmful elements or engine heat. If belts and hoses are not properly maintained, they can mean big trouble for your car’s engine. Before that happens, get your vehicle into the bays at Willoughby Hills Auto Repair in Willoughby Hills, OH.
Most people get their oil changed on a regular basis, but few have the foresight to have the belts and hoses checked as well. An overdue oil change can cause big headaches if not performed for too long; but cracked or damaged belts and hoses can have you waiting by the side of the road for a tow truck.
