Almost everyone has experienced what it’s like to pull a rubber band off of a newspaper or mail item, and have it snap. You know instinctively that the rubber is old, and brittle, and you try to protect your hands from the inevitable sting of impact. So why wouldn’t you prepare, and plan ahead, for the inevitable wear on rubber items on your car or truck?
Sooner or later, your car’s engine drive belts and coolant hoses will dry out and crack. Your car’s belts and hoses can also come loose from the continual vibration that occurs over time. Proper maintenance of your pulleys, and engine, can help push the failure of rubber belts and hoses off into higher mileage. Neglecting regular maintenance and checks of the rubber items under your hood can result in unexpected stops, catastrophic system failures, and often expensive repairs.
That’s why you should stop by your local A-1 Custom Car Care shop and have one of our experienced technicians inspect your belts and hoses to avoid expensive repairs later. When we perform maintenance or service to your vehicle, we will check the condition of these items, and advise you what is in good shape, what needs attention now, and our best estimates of what is up and coming.
A-1 Custom Car Care is locally owned and operates in Springfield MO and Republic MO. Our business model is based on the simple idea that we treat customers the same way we all want to be treated: with honesty, competence and respect.
