Belts & Hoses and Warning Signs

Preventive maintenance offers amazing benefits for your vehicle, especially when you are nearing 50,000 miles or have an older model. These cars need their belts and hoses checked every 3,000 miles to ensure that there are no cracks, leaks, splits, or soft spots. Mechanics typically check your timing belt, serpentine belts, and coolant hose during an oil change.

Some of the warning signs for these issues include screeching noises, vibrations, pools of liquid under your car, or overheating. Damage to your serpentine belts can lead to the loss of power steering, so if you notice a sluggish response from steering or the handling becomes more difficult, you should see a mechanic right away. Coolant hoses also need to be checked for leaks frequently as antifreeze leaks could lead to more engine damage.

If you notice any of these issues, head to Audi Atlanta right away for a reliable fix. Our service team offers expert, highly rated mechanics who get the job done right. We’re ready to help you get back on the road today.
