Almost everyone has heard of belts and hoses in an automotive context, but many people don’t know exactly what these terms refer to. The team here at Detroit Lakes Ford wants every driver to know how to properly care for their vehicle, and we offer attentive, professional belt and hose maintenance services at our location here in Detroit Lakes, MN to ensure that vehicles of all ages remain in good working order.

Belts and hoses are the connectors that keep engines running smoothly. Belts run between various engine parts and are responsible for the timing of certain operations while hoses circulate important fluids to various components.

Since belts and hoses are made of similar types of material, the trouble signs to look for are generally the same. Cracking, splitting, fraying, brittleness, and softening are all indicators that a belt or hose is due to be replaced.
