Once your car comes of a certain age or mileage, it’s time to think about some preventive maintenance. If you’ve ever had a belt or hose fail while you’re on the road, you already know why. If you haven’t had it happen – now you can imagine why!
Unlike metal parts in your engine that can last almost indefinitely with proper care, belts and hoses age out over time no matter what. The wear and tear from constant use, the heat, and of course the effect that time has on softer materials is unmistakable.
If a belt or hose (or maybe both) fails while you’re in transit, it can be more than just inconvenient. If the car overheats or is otherwise improperly run due to the failed part, a tremendous amount of damage can occur to the remaining parts in your engine compartment. This includes the engine itself, which if it overheats can seize up completely. If that happens, the motor (or the car) needs to be replaced.
Don’t despair! Preventive maintenance of these parts will save you considerable time, expense, frustration, and of course, keep you safe. Breaking down even in the safest of conditions can be harrowing. Breaking down on the freeway during rush hour – downright dangerous.
