Why Should I Replace my Hoses and Belts? | Carter Subaru Service FAQs

Answers to your service questions

A complex network of hoses, belts and wires sprawls all over your engine, delivering electricity, power and various fluids to the components that need them. The hoses and belts in particular are made of rubber, so they can flex, bend and shake as you travel over bumps and navigate obstacles on the road. That makes them durable so they won't snap or come loose as you drive along. However, rubber breaks down over time - particularly rubber that is exposed to heat and moisture, two things you'll find in any car engine! That's why the manufacturer prescribes a replacement interval for all your belts and hoses. This interval can be found in your owner's manual. If you've traveled that many miles since your belts were last replaced, it's time to get it done! Stop by the Carter Subaru Ballard service center to make sure it gets done right.

When it's a Good Idea to Replace your Subaru Belts and Hoses

As an example, the 2011 Subaru Outback maintenance schedule says that vehicle's drive belts should be replaced every 60,000 miles, and the timing belt should be replaced every 105,000 miles. However, that's under ideal conditions. If you frequently drive aggressively or experience a great deal of stop-and-go traffic, your belts and hoses may experience additional wear and tear. What's more, leaks in the engine can allow fluids and oils to coat a belt, causing it to perform poorly and break down rapidly. If you're not sure of the condition of your belts and hoses, we'd be happy to inspect them and recommend any necessary replacements.
