Your vehicle's engine contains a selection of belts and hoses that help it run. After a time, these parts break down, necessitating replacement. Regular inspections in the service department at Big Rock Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram can lead to timely repair, which can ultimately save you money. Here's what you need to know.

Pay attention to your vehicle's recommended maintenance schedule. Timing belts, which help keep the engine's valves and pistons moving in sync with one another, generally need attention after 60,000 miles. Timing belts show wear by fraying, leading to eventual breakage. When this happens, you could damage additional components in the engine.

Hoses help transfer brake and coolant fluids throughout your vehicle. These also wear out over time, developing leaks. Both problems can develop slowly, which is another reason why you should pay attention to scheduled maintenance. Ask our staff for recommendations f you don't have access to maintenance schedules.
