Checking and Replacing Your Vehicle’s Belts and Hoses | Toronto, ON

Service for your vehicle’s belts and hoses should be a part of any regular maintenance routine. If something goes wrong with these components, the consequences for your vehicle can be serious — everything from engine overheating to a loss of power steering. Read on to learn more about the reasons to have your belts and hoses inspected here at Lexus Downtown.
 

Coolant & Heater Hoses

Coolant and Heater Hoses | Toronto, ON

From scorching hot summers to freezing, snowy winters, your car’s heating and cooling system includes hoses designed to keep up with varying conditions and temperatures.

These hoses are vital to keeping your vehicle running well.  That’s why it’s important to bring your vehicle in to our service centre for upkeep.

Our technicians will check out your cooling and heating hoses, looking out for any cracks, nicks, bulges, and other issues. Your coolant-recovery tank will also be checked for the correct fluid levels, and we will flush and replace your coolant if needed to keep your vehicle running well into the future.

Accessory Belts

Like your hoses, your vehicle’s belts are built to withstand extreme conditions. The majority of vehicles out on the road have a single, multi-grooved serpentine belt.

This belt powers many things, including
  • The Alternator
  • Water Pump
  • Power-Steering Pump
  • Air-Conditioning Compressor
Because of this, it’s safe to say that taking care of your belt is vital to your vehicle’s operation.
 
Your belt can typically last for up to 50,000 miles if it’s properly maintained — and that’s just what our technicians specialize in. Our service centre will check your belt over regularly, keeping an eye out for cracks, fraying, or splits in the top cover. We will also check for any excessive wear, including glazing, which can cause your belt to overheat or crack in the future.

All of your belts and hoses will also be replaced with Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) parts, which are exact replicas of the parts already used in your vehicle.
