Your Timing Belt and Other Valves and Hoses

You've probably heard of your timing belt. Most often, it's a rubber belt that ensures that the pistons and valves connected with your engine open and close at the right times. The timing belt is one type of belt that might need replacement after much wear, and there are a couple of other parts that you will want to watch to ensure that your vehicle is running smoothly.

The serpentine belt is another type of belt that your vehicle needs in order to run. This belt runs the length of the vehicle, and if it's not working, your vehicle simply won't move. There are also several types of hoses that need maintenance. For instance, the coolant hoses are necessary to deliver antifreeze, so your vehicle maintains the proper temperatures. If one of these hoses is cracked, antifreeze won't reach the parts that need it.
