Belts may wear and break over time. A belt that becomes worn may slip or also become so slack that it may not function correctly. Hoses may split after long years of use or when exposed to harsh temperatures. A damaged hose pipe may lead to vital fluids dripping from your engine and may create damage to engine parts. To prevent some of the most usual causes of breakdown, see to it your belts and hoses are checked at routine intervals.
