BELTS HOSES AND OTHER FLUIDS
MAINTAIN YOUR BELTS, HOSES AND FLUIDS TO ENSURE YOUR VEHICLE’S OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE.
Modern cars are complex machines that can only perform at their best when they are well-maintained. To ensure optimal performance, follow these basic maintenance practices for fan belts, hoses and cooling systems, brakes, power steering and manual or automatic transmissions.
FAN BELTS DRIVE
Fan Belts use some of the power of the engine to drive external devices such as: water pump, alternator, power steering pump, air conditioner compressor and certain emission control devices.
CHECK YOUR FAN BELT
You should be looking for the following: (be sure engine is cool, turned off and ignition key is removed!) excessive looseness, cracks and glazed or shiny rubber. If any of those problems are visible, you should replace your fan belt. Otherwise, get it changed every two years. As always, if you are uncertain about the condition of your fan belt, have it checked by a trained technician.
Check your fan belt with every oil change (5,000 kilometres)
Check your hoses and cooling system every oil change (5,000 kilometres)
