When should you replace your belts and hoses?

You should inspect them regularly; be sure to schedule routine maintenance as recommended by your manufacturer. Experts claim that all hoses should be replaced about every 4 years or whenever they’re damaged. Compared to other car parts, belts and hoses have a shorter life span since they’re exposed to extreme conditions including chemicals, oils, and hot and cold environments.

Located in Des Moines, IA, Stephens Automotive is happy to inspect your belts and hoses for damage.

What do belts and hoses do?

Your vehicle’s belts and hoses are vital for it to function properly. They are responsible for the cooling system, A/C system, charging system, engine, and more. When they aren’t working right, it can cause serious damage to your vehicle. Belts keep the internal components of your vehicle moving how they should. Hoses keep the liquids and gases moving in the engine compartment and throughout the entire vehicle. A common hose failure occurs with the radiator hose. When this fails to cool the engine, the engine can overheat which leads to several major issues.

We would love to help you avoid real problems with routine maintenance on your belts and hoses. Stephens Automotive proudly services the belts and hoses of customers in Des Moines, IA and surrounding areas.

What amazing service! We recently had our mini-van worked on for a problem with it's air conditioning. Not only did Stephen's finish the work faster than completed, they also reduced the price of our bill to reflect the amount of labor. We were pleasantly surprised to find that kind of honesty! Thank you Stephen's, you've made us a loyal customer!
