Belts & Hoses

Get Rid of Those Squeaks & Leaks!
Think of the belts under your hood like the chain on a bicycle transferring energy to where it's needed. Your vehicle's hoses are like arteries, responsible for carrying life-sustaining coolant to the places that need it. Without proper maintenance, your engine could overheat and the risk of a breakdown becomes very real. Belts and hoses degrade over time and can crack, split, swell or burst. It is important to check them at the regular intervals recommended by your vehicle's manufacturer to avoid a breakdown from a broken belt or hose failure. Midway Motors Technicians are trained to inspect your belts and hoses to identify any warning signs or concerns.



Replacement Belts & Hoses at Midway Motors


Radiator Hose Replacement
Your vehicle's radiator hoses are responsible for transferring hot coolant from the engine to the radiator for cooling and then back to the engine again after the coolant temperature has been lowered. The hoses, together with the radiator, cooling fan(s), thermostat and related components allow the coolant to effectively move through the cooling system, regulating and displacing heat from your engine.

Timing Belt Replacement
Most vehicles using an overhead cam design utilize a timing belt to drive and precisely synchronize camshaft movement, hence the name 'timing belt'. Similar to a serpentine or v-belt, your timing belt will degrade over time and with usage. Unlike standard drive belts, wear on your timing belt is not visible because it is housed inside the engine, behind the timing cover. Time, temperature and stress cause the belt to degrade and if not replaced at the manufacturer specified interval, this component could fail without warning. When a timing belt fails, it will either 'jump' a tooth or two or break completely and the moving parts inside your engine no longer move in sync with one another. It doesn't just mean an inconvenient breakdown, it could mean serious and costly engine damage. 

Although the timing belt can be costly to replace, it is a wise investment. Being proactive and replacing this belt at the intervals recommended by your OEM will help protect your wallet from costly engine damage.  

Belt Tensioners Replacement
The belt tensioner is a pulley that keeps the serpentine belt wrapped tightly around the engine's accessory components, such as the air conditioning compressor or water pump. If the belt is not kept tight, it will not create enough resistance to turn your engine components, which could lead to an unnecessary break down.

Anytime a new serpentine belt is needed, or if your belts are squealing, the tensioner and all of the pulleys should be inspected. If the tensioner is worn or damaged, it will require replacement so that the serpentine belt has proper tension to keep those important components turning.
