We are well versed in all makes and models, which helps us help you get back on the road in no time.

Belts and hoses seem like relatively minor items in the car when compared to the engine or transmission.

However, without these crucial parts the engine would overheat, the transmission would grind to a halt and the car would simply not run. When you are in need of belt or hose repair, service or maintenance, contact the top car service team in Slacks Creek – Kiwi French Automotive.

Belts and hoses services Kiwi French Automotive offer include:

  • Coolant Hose Replacement
  • Serpentine Belt Replacement
  • Timing Belt Replacement
  • Fan Belt Replacement
  • Air Intake Hose Replacement
  • Hose Clamp Replacement

As there are so many belts and hoses in your vehicle performing a myriad of functions, we want to pass on some basic knowledge of what belts and hoses are.

  • Coolant Hose: Connects the radiator to the engine to cool engine fluids.
  • Serpentine Belts: Control the pulleys with the mechanisms of the steering pump, water pump and alternator.
  • Timing Belt: Manages the timing of various valves in the engine.
  • V-Belt: Controls the timing of various valves in the transmission.
  • Fan Belt: Draws air into the radiator.
  • Air Intake Hoses: Brings air into the engine to control the ratio of fuel and air.

Knowing the common belt and hose issues which can arise will help you identify what issue you may be facing:

  • Overheating: There may be a crack or hole in the coolant hoses.
  • Belt Wear: Usually identified by inspection, belt wear can result in a broken timing or serpentine belt.
  • Squealing From the Engine: This sound may be a broken or worn fan belt.

For a yearly inspection or if you are facing these issues, make an appointment with one of our technicians today!
