But, the reality is that a faulty fan belt or a damaged radiator hose can cause problems in the winter. We see it from time to time when trucks come in for service at Skaha Ford in BC.

While the high temperatures of summer have a way of shortening the life of rubber, winter brings forth its own sets of troubles. Extreme changes from hot to cold can make belts and hoses more prone to cracking, resulting in damage or leaks and expensive repairs. Checking these components should be a common occurrence to spot damage before it becomes an issue. 

When inspecting belts, check the underside to spot any cracks or flexing, glazed sidewalls and uneven wear. If you notice any of these issues, it’s time for a replacement. The same is true for hoses. When inspecting these components, look for signs of cracking, bulging or swelling, sponginess from oil, or bursts in the line. Any of these conditions require an immediate hose replacement.

Ensure your medium-duty truck’s performance this winter by maintaining your belts and hoses at Skaha Ford’s Service Department. To schedule an appointment, contact us today.
