Some of your car's cooling system parts that take quite a beating on a daily basis are the belts and hoses. If a belt breaks, or a hose develops a major leak, your car will most likely overheat, and it could lead to engine damage. Every thirty to forty thousand miles is probably a good interval to have all the hoses and belts in your car changed. Some belts and hoses are built to last for the life of your vehicle and are guaranteed as such. The extra money you spend on these heavy-duty parts may be worth it in the long run. Prices for installation on belts and hoses will vary according to the car you drive, so you may want to comparison shop for the best price. Contact a local mechanic for more information on the belts and hoses in your car.
