If you have ever noticed your car screeching or overheating, you likely have an issue with a cracked belt or leaky hose. Timing belts are one of the most important to check because if these fail, your engine will likely stop working. Serpentine belts also may crack or split, causing the loss of power steering. If you notice a loud screeching noise or vibration when you try to turn the wheel, it may be because of a broken serpentine belt.

Coolant and heater hoses help maintain the temperature of the cabin by providing antifreeze to your radiator. If these start to crack and leak, it could damage other parts of your engine, which is why mechanics typically check these every time you get an oil change. It’s recommended that you bring your car in every 3,000 miles for an inspection to prevent these issues.
