Belts and hoses may not be the most exciting components of your car, but they’re some of the most important. Your engine’s cooling system, air conditioning, alternator, heater core, radiator, and more all require belts and hoses to operate. The hoses are constantly exposed to chemicals, heat, vibrations, and stress as you run and drive your car. As such, they have some of the shortest lifespans among components in your car.

Depending on what you drive, your vehicle uses a timing belt or a timing chain to match the rotation of your engine’s camshaft and crankshaft. This is an essential component of operating your vehicle. Any issue here will disrupt your engine’s ability to open and close its valves. This leads to a failure deep within the engine and can result in an extensive repair or even engine rebuild. The team at AAMCO of San Antonio North is here to help you avoid major engine repairs by checking and replacing your timing belt. We have years of experience and the right tools to make it a simple fix. We’ll replace your timing belt or chain and synchronize your camshaft and crankshaft to guarantee a smooth, efficient drive.
Your car’s heater absorbs the excess heat generated by your hot engine. It then uses that to heat you and your passengers in the cabin. The hot liquid coolant exits your engine and gets carried to the heater core until finally passing to the cooling system all via small heater hoses. These hoses withstand constant high heat, temperature variations, vibrations from driving, and corrosive coolant. They eventually will wear out and fail, causing you to lose heat in your vehicle. Our team will inspect and replace your heater hoses to keep you comfortable all-year-round. Plus, broken or damaged hoses cause you to lose coolant, which is vital to keeping your engine from overheating.
