Minor Belt and Hose Maintenance Saves Big

The last thing you want is to be stranded on the side of the road because of a broken belt or leaking hose. This is especially true when simple timely maintenance could have saved you the trouble and expense. Your first step is to have an automotive professional can do a visual inspection.

A series of belts and hoses connect your engine to such vital parts as the alternator, water pump, air injection pump, brakes, and power steering pump. If a belt or hose breaks while you are driving, you could lose control of your vehicle or cause expensive damage to your car.

To keep your belts and hoses healthy, follow the maintenance schedule shown in your owner’s manual, and do not ignore funny noise from under the hood. Something as innocuous as squealing could be a belt slipping. Schedule your appointment today to have one of our automotive professionals here at Bert Smith BMW inspect your belts and hoses.
