What to do if You Notice a Squeak or Leak Coming From Your Vehicle

Your car, truck or SUV guides you through the Ames, IA region as you move from one task to the next. However, your Nissan vehicle requires maintenance and repairs from time to time to keep it in working condition. Perhaps you've just noticed a squeaking sound coming from your engine or small drops of fluid collecting on your driveway. Could this be an indication of an impending service issue?

It sounds like you may need to replace a belt or hose in your vehicle. Your belts and hoses serve an important function, helping to transfer fluids, pressure and power. For example, your car's serpentine belt helps drive power to several components of your engine. If your serpentine belt fails, your car may overheat, lose electrical or steering power, or more.

Your belts and hoses come manufactured with synthetic materials that can withstand regular use, but after years of exposure to extreme temperature fluctuations or high vehicle mileage, they can start to develop cracks or lose their ability to hold their position. When this happens, you need to get your components replaced with new auto parts right away. Let the Lithia Nissan of Ames team help you get back on the streets with confidence.
