Phoenix Automotive Hose Repair

Your engine compartment is an extreme environment, exposed to heat, vibration, and dirt whenever you drive your car. The rubber hoses that help your engine run wear out faster than any other components in your car, because they are constantly heated, cooled, and stretched. In Phoenix, the extreme temperatures and heavy fog at times can accelerate this wear. If a hose or belt fails, it can easily cause you serious issues. This is why it is important to get them inspected and or replaced periodically.

At Perez Auto Repair we know hoses. Here’s a list of some of your vehicles more common hoses:

LOW PRESSURE FUEL HOSE – Like the kind used in carbureted vehicles

HIGH PRESSURE FUEL HOSE – Use for electronic fuel system

COOLANT HOSE – Heater hoses and radiator hoses

HYDRAULIC HOSE – Power steering and brakes

A/C HOSE – Vehicle’s air conditioning system

VACUUM HOSE – Designed for vacuum, windshield washer fluid, and radiator overflow use

COMPRESSED AIR HOSE – Air ride suspension, air brakes, or even an air horn

Regular inspections and routine maintenance are important, especially because belts and hoses can fail suddenly, with little or no warning if you’re not paying attention. One common sign of a worn belt is a squeal or whine from the engine, which will increase with the engine speed. Damaged belts can cause mechanical parts to malfunction or break, and damaged hoses cause leaks, which can also damage your engine or make it run improperly. By getting them inspected, you may be able to prevent a sudden failure, which could leave you stranded or damage your engine unexpectedly.
