Your Honda features quite a few moving parts. Each of them counts on belts and hoses to either help them move or to circulate liquids through to keep them cool and lubricated. Serpentine belts drive your air conditioning compressor, water pump, and alternator. Then there's the timing belt that turns your camshaft. Hoses help transport coolant between your radiator and engine. Some systems, such as your air conditioning and heating system, rely on both belts and hoses in order to operate properly.
How to Tell if Your Belts & Hoses are Failing
Damage may not always be readily visible, especially with hoses. They tend to wear from the inside, only revealing a problem when they split. Here are some things to look for:
- Loose belts
- Fraying belts Cracks in your hosesOdd noises from under the hood
While you can continue to drive your car, van, or SUV if a serpentine belt breaks, you'll still want to replace it as soon as possible to keep the part it powers working. If your timing belt goes bad, it's likely to cause an immediate engine shut-down. Worn-out hoses are a recipe for problems, as the parts they service aren't able to stay cool and lubricated. If a visual inspection doesn't show any problems, check your owner's manual for the recommended maintenance schedule. You'll want to switch out any belts are hoses according to that. When you do, make sure to use the same factory Honda parts that originally came with your vehicle. They're the only ones where fit and performance compatibility is guaranteed.
