Checking out the belts and hoses under the hood of your VW should be a priority on your list, because they help to control a lot of different components your vehicle relies on to function properly. Your car's performance is impacted by a lot, including the operation of these parts. Your serpentine belt helps to power up engine parts, while the timing belt helps keeps things in order. A radiator hose maintains your engine's temperature. There are several signs that there might be problems with your belts and hoses that you should be aware of. First of all, when you do a visual inspection, if you notice ribs on your car's belts pulling apart, this is a sure sign of wear and tear. Your hoses might feel soft or spongy in spots, or you might be able to identify cracks or holes in the surface. Power loss might occur to different accessories, like your power steering or your air conditioning. This can come from wear and tear to your belts. You might hear squealing or screeching noises when they are failing as well. Hoses might start to leak, leaving pools of fluid under your car.
