Warning Signs of Belt or Hose Failure


If either the belts or hoses on your car fail, the engine will overheat and you could wind up stranded on the road without the ability to move your vehicle. Here are a few warning signs of the potential belt or hose failure.

The belts throughout the engine are working to move parts like the water pump and fan, and if the belt fails these parts won't operate. The belts will make a squealing sound if failing, and you can visually see the rubber cracking or splitting.

Hoses have to be in top shape in order for coolant to pass through to various parts of the engine. Warning signs of failing hoses are cracks or bloated spots, as well as soft spots in the rubber.

If you suspect the belts or hoses on your car are showing signs of failing, bring your vehicle to Vista Lincoln of Oxnard so we can take a closer look at the concern.
