One of the advantages of knowing the warning signs of failing hoses and belts in your car is you have the chance to get them replaced before they allow the engine to become damaged from overheating.

The belts on the engine have to be in good condition to be able to power the radiator fan and water pump, to name a few parts. The belts fail, then these parts cannot operate and trouble will follow. In order to identify trouble early, listen for the belts squealing or look closely to see if the belts are tearing or fraying.

Radiator hoses give warning signs you will have to observe closely. Feel for soft spots or look for cracks or slitting of the rubber surface of the hoses.

At the first sign of trouble with your car's hoses and belts, stop by our service center here at Alan Jay Kia and we can give the engine a full inspection.
