Belt & Hose Replacement
Hess Tire & Auto Parts is Lewistown, PA's choice for preventative maintenance and repair including replacing your car's belts and hoses. The hoses under the hood of your vehicle are like arteries, responsible for carrying life-sustaining fluids to the places which need it. Your vehicle also has belts with various functions such as timing belts, or chains, and serpentine belts. If your belts & hoses are not properly maintained, the threat of a breakdown becomes very real.
Belts degrade over time and can crack, swell, or burst. Hoses can glaze and split after years of use or when exposed to severe temperatures. A faulty hose can cause fluids to leak from your engine and may cause damage to engine components. To avoid breakdowns, be sure to have our trained professional at Hess Tire & Auto Parts inspect your belts and hoses to identify any warning signs or concerns.
