The cooling system has an essential role for your engine. It keeps the engine from overheating. The cooling system includes drive belts and radiator hoses. Unfortunately, those parts become dry-rotted. The belts can crack from the dry-rotting, which can cause them to break. The hoses can leak or even burst. Once the belts and hoses become deficient, there is a very high probability that your engine will overheat. A engine that overheats will lose power and leave you stranded.

There isn’t anything that you can do to prevent the dry-rotting from occurring. However, you can schedule preventive maintenance for a technician to examine the condition of those parts. It is recommended that you have a belts and hoses inspection at least once a year. Typically, it is done along with other regularly scheduled maintenance to save time.
