When should I change my
belts & hoses?
The hoses and belts should be replaced at 35,000 to 60,000 miles. It
is best to do a total belt and/or hose replacement just before the hot summertime. Ask for
hoses and belts that carry a lifetime warranty. Expect to pay between $15 to $6030 for
each v-belt (depending on the belts length) and between $25 to $95 for each wide, multi
ribbed serpentine belt. Labor charges depend on the engine type and at least ten other
Remember, ask for your old belts and radiator hoses be returned to
you. Put them in your trunk. You know they fit your car, they came off your car. If you
get stuck in a small town on a Sunday morning with a blown radiator hose or a bad fan
belt, you'll be darn glad you took my advice.
