Belts and Hoses
Your Ford runs on a number of different belts and hoses which are essential to your vehicle’s basic functions. Over time, the belts will begin to wear down and hoses can also become damaged to warped with regular use of your vehicle. At DTX Automotive in Dallas, TX, we are the Ford experts in the area and can assist with any belt or hose repair that your vehicle may need. Our mechanics are Ford Master certified and work on all makes and models of Ford.
At our Dallas Ford auto repair shop, we recommend that your vehicle’s belts and hoses are inspected regularly, at least once a year. At the first time of wear on a belt, a replacement should be made in order to prevent the belt from snapping and causing more internal issues. It is also important to stay current with your vehicle’s manufacturer’s recommendations with regards to how often to replace your belts, considering that some belt wear cannot be seen with the naked eye.
Any of the following symptoms can indicate a problem with a belt or hose:
- Grinding noise while driving
- Lack of power
- Leaking fluids
- Vehicle “slipping”
- Vibrating while driving
If you notice any of the issues above, give us a call here at DTX Automotive or stop by our shop. We have the latest, Ford diagnostic equipment and tools to accurately diagnose and repair any problem with a belt or hose.
For all of your Ford’s repair and service needs, bring your vehicle into DTX Automotive in Dallas, TX.
