Belts and hoses should be inspected regularly in order to avoid being stuck roadside if there is any failure. The engine uses belts to enhance accessories like Alternator, Water Pump, A/C, Air Pump, and Power Steering. Rubber belts generally start to dry rot with age and can break unexpectedly, due to engine temperatures and weather changes.
Moreover, hoses, also made of rubber that can also dry rot with time, are used to transport coolant, power steering fluid, and fuel.
