The hoses under the bonnet of your vehicle are like arteries, responsible for carrying life-sustaining fluids to the places which need it.
If your hoses are not properly maintained, the threat of a breakdown becomes very real.
Hoses can glaze and split after years of use or when exposed to severe temperatures. A faulty hose can cause fluids to leak from your engine and may cause damage to engine components. To avoid breakdowns, be sure to have our trained professional at Bathurst inspect your hoses to identify any warning signs or concerns.
Talk to your mechanic at Bathurst if you notice any:
Reduction of power
Screeching or grinding sound
If you feel vibrations, ‘slides’ or ‘catching’
Find any leaks
Vehicle becomes over heated
It is suggested to have hoses checked every 3,000 miles or with every oil change. A belt and hose examination from C.S. Lee Tire & Auto checks for:
Glazing, fracturing, peeling off and softening of belts
Appropriate drive pulley alignment
Leakages and splits
Hardening, cracking and softening of hose pipes
A cooling system pressure examination to help check for leaks
Loose or worn clamps
