Timing belts and cooling hoses are made of rubber. And because they are subject to high-heat, high-pressure environments, they are prone to cracking, weakening and softening.
In comparison to the rest of the equipment in your vehicle, belts and hoses have a relatively short lifespan. Because your serpentine belts and cooling hoses work in conjunction to make your engine maintain proper temperature, this can spell disaster for your car.
Ideally, you should schedule serpentine belt and cooling hose replacements about every 60-100,000 miles, or as recommended by you owner’s manual. Proper hose and belt maintenance is just as important as regular oil changes—if your timing belt or hose fails, so will your engine. And it will cost you more than an overdue oil change ever will.
