There are a few different belts and hoses that you should check with your regular oil change. These include timing belts, serpentine belts, and coolant hoses. Over time, these accessories can crack, split, wear down, and leak, causing issues for other parts of your engine. Your timing belt is one of the most important, as your engine may fail otherwise. If you have noticed any screeching noises, vibrations, pulling, reduction of power, or overheating, you likely need to have your car serviced as soon as possible.

Coolant hoses can also cause significant problems as well. These are responsible for delivering antifreeze to your radiator. If this hose leaks, it could cause erosion and damage other parts of your car’s engine if you are not careful. This is why it’s recommended to check your belts and hoses every 3,000 miles.
