When the cooling system is experiencing issues, you will be able to spot very clear warning signs. Here are warning signs parts of the cooling system might be close to failing.

The hoses on your car's engine have to be in top condition to allow coolant to flow throughout the many parts of the cooling system. If the hoses are failing, you will feel brittle patches or soft spots. Look for bulges or cracks on the hoses as warning signs of serious trouble.

The belts that make up the cooling system move parts like the water pump or fan, and will show signs of trouble too. Look for cracks or splits on the rubber, and listen to see if there is a squealing sound as the belts slip.

If you have concerns the belts or hoses are experiencing issues, stop by Sterling Kia Lafayette and we will give your vehicle a closer inspection.
