Why Drivers in Santa Barbara Should Check Belts and Hoses

Your vehicle has an intricate network of hoses and belts for optimum performance under various driving conditions. A single serpentine belt is versatile enough to drive numerous systems under the hood of your car. For example, this installation provides mechanical energy for an alternator that directly generates electricity. The electrical supply is diverted to a battery pack, which typically has lead, water and acid solutions. A serpentine belt is also in charge of a powertrain's coolant system that resists erratic spikes in temperatures during the summer season. Under extreme driving conditions, the coolant system rapidly removes heat from the engine block and other interconnected parts.

When you look under the hood of your car, you'll see multiple hoses that carry important fluids in fixed cycles. For instance, some hoses transport gasoline from the fuel tank to the intake system in the engine block. Visit DCH Lexus of Santa Barbara's service department for replacements of belts and hoses.
