Why Must I Have My Vehicle's Belts and Hoses Replaced? Common Service Questions at Carlsen Subaru in Redwood City

Answers to your service questions

Your Subaru uses a variety of fluids - from brake fluid to power steering fluid to coolant - to keep it running smoothly. These fluids travel through soft, rubber hoses, which can flex and move around as your vehicle encounters the various demands of the road. While those hoses are both flexible and durable, they will eventually fail. It can be difficult to visually inspect a hose or belt and determine if it's near failure. That's why Subaru provides regular maintenance guidelines that recommend when you should have your hoses and belts replaced. Bring your vehicle by the Carlsen Subaru service department and we can replace the belts and hoses in your vehicle that are overdue for replacement - before they fail altogether.

What Happens if I Fail to Replace my Belts and Hoses?

While some hoses connect supplemental components that won't cripple your car if they fail, others - like coolant hoses - can cause severe damage if they fail. If the rubber of your power steering hose, for example, crumbles and breaks, you might be able to continue driving, but steering will become incredibly stiff with no power assist. However, a failed coolant hose can cause your engine to rapidly overheat, which can do major, long-term damage to the central components of your engine.
