Belts & Hoses Replacement

Hoses run fluids (antifreeze/coolant) through the radiator and engine to help keep the engine cool.

Drive belts control the turning of important engine components such as the alternator, water pump, and power steering pump.

Belts and hoses are extremely important to your vehicle. If they fail, your vehicle could break down. To help prevent this, make sure your belts and hoses are checked at regular intervals. An easy way to remember is to have them checked every 3,000 miles or with every oil change at Middle Country Automotive in Centereach NY 11720 or Selden NY 11784.
