Newark ~ Middletown ~ New Castle DE Automotive Belts & Hoses Repair

Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care offers complete automotive belt and hose repair services at our auto repair shop in Newark ~ Middletown ~ New Castle. Our team of auto mechanics understand that the belts and hoses in your vehicle play an important role for the smooth operation of the engine, air conditioning, charging, and cooling systems in your automobile. Failure to adhere to the manufacturer recommended replacement schedule can result in your car breaking down and leaving you stranded somewhere in or around the Newark ~ Middletown ~ New Castle area.

Some of the belts we repair and service at our Newark ~ Middletown ~ New Castle auto repair center that keep your vehicle operating smoothly are the serpentine belt, fan belt, drive belt (V-Belt), and timing belt. The timing belt is used to maintain the synchronization necessary for the camshaft and crankshaft to maintain the timing of your engine. Power is transmitted from the front of the engine to various vehicle accessories, including the air conditioning and charging system by the serpentine belt, V-belt, and fan belt. Coolant fluid is passed through the engine, radiator, and heater core using the upper/lower radiator hoses and heater hose.

Timing belts are not used in all automobiles. The serpentine or drive belts are sometimes used exclusively by a vehicle to provide all the power necessary for its accessories. Other vehicles use a combination of the serpentine and drive belts to power vehicle accessories.

Various Newark ~ Middletown ~ New Castle driving conditions can contribute to the wear and tear of your vehicle's belts and hoses. Some of these include the age and mileage of your car or truck, the tension of your belts, hose clamp failure, contaminated oil, and electrolytic corrosion. Symptoms that you might be having problems with your belts or hoses include the presence of a squeaking noise from under your hood, coolant leaks, dashboard light warnings, failure of the air conditioning, and engine overheating. So whatever your automotive service and repair need may be, bring your car or truck to our Newark ~ Middletown ~ New Castle auto repair shop and let the team of automotive repair professionals at Benchmark Transmission & Auto Care be of service to you.
