Rubber engine cooling system hoses should be replaced every 100,000km, as failure usually starts on the inside of the hose, cracking outwards. Failure will not be noticed until a coolant leak occurs.
Rubber belts, especially timing belts, are usually recommended for replacement at 100,000km (some manufacturers have different schedules, sometimes as little as 60,000km).
Belts and Hoses: Common Symptoms and Causes
Belts and hoses suffer much wear and tear in a vehicle. These little parts are always in motion and can break down over time. Depending on the conditions which you are often driving in, the life of belts and hoses will differ. Some of the common symptoms and causes of belt and hose issues in a vehicle include:
- Car will not start because timing belt has slipped.
- Timing in the engine is not functioning properly because of broken teeth on the timing belt.
- Squealing sounds from the engine due to belt slipping.
- Overheating because of a broken fan belt or faulty coolant hoses.
Our mechanics are trained to always check the status of your belts and hoses. Catching an issue early on can save you a headache later.
