Helpful Hints
Signs of a Compromised Timing Belt

If you notice your vehicle doing any of these things, it may need a new timing belt:

  • The engine isn’t turning over
  • A ticking sound is inside the engine
  • The engine is misfiring
  • Oil is leaking in front of the engine
What Do Vehicle Belts Do?

All vehicles have a timing belt, which ensures smooth operation of your engine. Some also use a system of pulleys and belts to power accessories such as:

  • Alternator
  • Water pump for engine cooling
  • Power steering pump
  • Air conditioning compressor
  • Radiator cooling fan

Newer cars use a single multi-accessory serpentine belt in place of individual belts to drive these accessories.

Types of Vehicle Hoses

Vehicles have many fluids and vapors, which move through hoses. The primary types are:

  • Vacuum hose – designed for vacuum, windshield washers, and radiator overflow use
  • Fuel hose – delivers fuel from the gas tank to the engine
  • Heater & radiator hose – both move coolant around the car, but they are different sizes
