The belts within your engine are there to make sure that all the systems within your car can share the energy created by your engine. Over time, exposure to fluctuating temperature and moisture causes wear-and-tear. Under consistent tension, eventually these belts will stretch out and become too loose, losing their ability to grip the various pulleys within your car’s engine.
Much the same is true for hoses. While not under tension, over time rubber will dry out, and exposure to repeated freezing and thawing will cause them to expand and contract, leading to cracks. These cracks will often leak, further complicating matters as many of the fluids they transport can increase wear-and-tear on other engine components. Contact Progressive Auto, your trusted Regina auto repairs shop, to ensure your car’s belts and hoses are in working condition.
