Jiffy Lube of Indiana is back with another installment of Summer Car Care tips to help get you through summer. Next up on our list: Belts & Hoses.
The focus during summer driving should be on keeping the engine cool. Simple preventative maintenance to your belts and hoses can keep you on the road running strong all summer long. Belts and hoses keep your vehicle’s cooling system running, your battery recharging, and your air conditioning flowing.
Make sure to inspect your belts and hoses for cracks, leaks, and loose connections. Also make sure to feel all the hoses and belts to make sure they are firm and not soft and squishy. If you notice any of these problems, replace the worn out belt or hose immediately.
