3. Check Hoses and Belts

Hoses carry your car’s coolant; belts make lots of important stuff work. They’re vital – and they’re easy to check out.

Just look at them: see any loose connections? See any cracks or leaks? Hoses shouldn’t be too soft, and belts shouldn’t be too loose. Neither should be brittle or look overly worn. If you’re in doubt, go to your local auto parts store for a second opinion or have a mechanic check them out. That probably won’t cost you a dime, but could save you a ton of money and aggravation down the road.

Comments & discussion

We welcome your opinions, but let’s keep it civil. Like many businesses, we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone. In our case, that means those who communicate by name-calling, racism, using words designed to hurt others or generally acting like an uninformed bully. Also, comments that include links to email addresses or commercial websites typically aren't posted. This isn't a place to advertise your business.
