Don't Forget the Small Things When Servicing Your Ford

When it comes to your auto maintenance, it is just as important to pay attention to the little things as it is the big ones. A seemingly small item like a belt or hose can create a big headache for you if it fails due to a lack of maintenance.

Your belts and hoses do not really require much in the way of actual maintenance. Rather, a good visual inspection is done in order to keep an eye out for potential upcoming failures. Under a good light, take a look under your hood at your belts and hoses. Give them a squeeze or press on them and watch for cracks. Small stress cracks are normal, but if you see anything large or anything that you can see all the way through, then you will know that it needs to be replaced before it fails.

If you need an inspection done on your belts and hoses, then bring your car, truck, or SUV to the service department here at North Central Ford in Richardson, TX.
