Checking and Repairing Automotive Belts and Hoses

Belts and hoses keep your car running smoothly on the road. Motorists in Southampton should appreciate the significant roles that these automotive parts play in overall performance. Made of rubber and steel, belts revolve around several systems under the hood of your car. A single serpentine belt is much more efficient and versatile than several independent belts. Some roles of a belt include driving the alternator, radiator fan and crankshaft. Cracks and low tension are some of the most common problems involving belts.

Your car's cooling system heavily depends on hoses, which are covered in thick layers of rubber and metal to prevent leaks. Engine coolant fluid is circulated by heavy-duty hoses whenever the car stands idle or moves. A leak in the cooling system may compromise the entire powertrain due to overheating. At Jaguar Southampton, we offer professional diagnostics and repairs of belts and hoses for new and used models.
