Your vehicle is made up of a dizzying number of individual components. Many of these components are connected using belts and hoses. Without these basic parts, your vehicle wouldn't be able to leave your driveway in Englewood. Today, your friends at Landmark Lincoln want to shed some light on these vital items.

One crucial belt in your vehicle is the serpentine belt. This belt winds its way around many of your vehicle's most important systems, including the power steering pump, air conditioner, and alternator. Typically, you'll need to replace this belt every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. In many cases, you can see the serpentine belt when you open your hood. If there are cracks in the belt, it's time for a new one.

Hoses are responsible for sending various fluids to where they need to be. The radiator hose, for example, carries coolant to the engine to help regulate the engine's temperature. You'll also find coolant in the heater hose on its way to the vehicle's heater core, ensuring you have warm air in the vehicle cabin on cold days.
