All About Nissan Belts and Hoses
Nissan car or truck, SUV or van, your vehicle has all sorts of moving parts. Belts and hoses keep them moving -- the former mechanically, the latter hydraulically (using liquid pressure). There are several types of each.
Serpentine belts and drive belts (the latter also known as V-belts), for example, move parts in everything from the AC system and alternator to the power steering system and others. Timing belts, for another, turn crankshafts and camshafts, thereby coordinating engine valves and pistons. Radiator hoses, on the other hand, transfer coolant (antifreeze) back and forth between the radiator and engine.
Heater core hoses, though, send coolant through the heater while it's hot to help warm a vehicle's cabin. Of course, these aren't all a Nissan can have. Fuel hoses, for instance, connect the gas tank and engine in older models, while brake hoses shunt brake fluid through lines to the brake calipers. There are even air intake hoses regulate oxygen levels in the engine, not to mention hoses for parts like oil coolers and positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valves.
Unfortunately, sometimes, any of them can go bad. Luckily, when that starts happening, some symptoms will tell you. They include the inability to start your Nissan, the vehicle not running right, and its complete disablement, plus things like obviously loose belts and hoses, damaged ones, screeching or chirping noises, leaking fluid, and battery and interior lighting malfunctions. Some of the worst signs of their failure, though, are engine misfires, overheats, and general systems failures.
See any of these, and you'll need to run an inspection, followed by changing any necessary belts or hoses ASAP. Otherwise, you can find more info on how often they need to be replaced in your owner's manual. It should give you mileage limits. Most hoses, however, get changed every 4 years.
Before buying new ones, however, make sure they're the genuine article. Nissan manufactures its belts and hoses to spec for its models, after all. That guarantees they'll fit and work with yours.
