What's the best way to make sure the many moving parts that make up your car or truck move the way they're supposed to? Start with the right set of OEM belts and hoses. Hoses, for example, use liquid pressure to charge your brakes as well as move other auto parts. Belts move most other parts, your crankshaft not least importantly. There are many kinds of belts and hoses. Serpentine and drive belts get your alternator and power steering moving, for instance. Timing belts and timing chains, on the other hand, help turn your camshaft. This makes your engine valves and pistons pump correctly. The job of brake hoses is to transfer brake fluid from brake lines to calipers, while air intake hoses oxygenate and control your engine's air/fuel mix, making sure the engine runs right. Your vehicle has plenty of other belts and hoses, too. They range from climate control belts and fan belts to radiator hoses and heater core hoses. If you're driving an older model, you might even still have fuel hoses. That's not to mention that hoses exist for oil coolers, PCV valves, and more. Signs of worn belts and hoses include subpar vehicle performance, disablement, visible looseness or damage, chirps, hose leaks, and even battery or interior lighting trouble. Even engine misfires, overheats, and failure can be symptoms, not to mention other systems failing. How you need to change belts depends on mileage and the maintenance schedules your owner's manual has. Timing chains, however, should last an entire engine lifetime. Most hoses, though, you can change about every 4 years. Ordering genuine belts and hoses online, however, is easy. You can get them right from the factory through our auto parts department.
