How to Identify Trouble With Your Belts and Hoses

Pay close attention to the sounds and sights of the belts and hoses under the hood of your car to identify issues before they cause bigger trouble. The radiator hoses have to carry engine coolant to the engine block and back to the radiator in order to keep all those internal parts cooled down. A bloated or squishy radiator hose could be an early sign it may be about to fail. If it fails on the highway, your car will overheat in minutes.

Listen for sounds coming from the belts because they could be close to failing too. Squeaky belts running to the radiator fan or water pump may snap and leave those parts unable to do the job they need to do to cool the engine.

If you see any of these warning signs, get the car to our Hyundai parts and repair store in Bartlesville, OK so our team can look to see if trouble exists.
