Loss of Belt or Hose Could Result In Sudden and Serious Trouble

April 7, 2014
dsp The Intelligencer / Wheeling News-Register

Losing a belt today can mean big trouble for the engine because serpentine belts are used on most engines to turn the water pump, alternator, power steering and air-conditioning compressor. If a belt snaps, everything is lost and you may be stranded. Older cars use individual V-belts for these various accessories. A blown hose could result in an overheated engine and can cause additional engine damage.
