Your vehicle has hundreds of parts that are integral to its proper operation while you are driving around in city. Some of these parts are ones you might never even consider, such as belts and hoses. But belts and hoses are very important, and if they malfunction, it can mean your car won't run.

One of the most important parts of your car is the timing belt. This belt is located on the outside of your engine and helps the crankshaft turn the camshaft. Timing belts can last as long as 100,000 miles, but it's usually recommended you replace it earlier. Hoses that are important for your vehicle include those connected to the radiator, fuel lines and your heating and air conditioning. If these hoses fail, you could have numerous problems.
