Belts and Hoses

The belts and hoses within a vehicle are made primarily of rubber and plastic along with metal fittings. The extreme temperatures within the engine combined with moisture and salt can cause the rubber and plastics to degrade, leading to uneven wear, slippage, cracks and breakage of the hoses and belts. Our team at Guffey’s Automotive offers belt and hose service and installation for all domestic and import vehicles.

Belt Service and Installation

Today’s vehicles use many different belts to coordinate engine and combustion activities. The serpentine belt operates accessories related to the engine, including the alternator, power steering pump, water pump and air conditioning compressor. If it breaks, the use of all these devices is lost.

The timing belt or timing chain synchronizes the actions of the crankshaft and engine valves. A crack or failure of the timing belt or chain can cause a total vehicle breakdown or failure of the engine. We fix and replace timing belts and chains, serpentine belts, alternator belts and all of the other belts within all makes and models of vehicles.

Hose Service and Installation

The radiator, air conditioner, coolant system and fuel system all use hoses to deliver oxygen, antifreeze and fuel to the vehicle. These hoses may crack or break due to wear and tear. Our team at Guffey’s Automotive stocks all sizes and types of hoses for all sorts of vehicles.
