Car Belts & Hoses Repair In Louisville, KY

Your car’s engine compartment is a miserable environment, combining extreme temperature variations and caustic chemicals, roadway dust projectiles and driveline vibrations. And that’s the environment where your car’s hoses and belts reside.

Not much wonder that those rubber components have a limited lifespan!

And those rubber components are necessary to keep your car running dependably. The belts drive your car’s critical systems: They pump coolant through the cooling system, keep the battery charged, provide the power to the power steering system, and drive the air conditioning compressor.

The hoses connect your vehicle’s engine to the chassis, allowing coolant to flow from the engine’s water jacket to the radiator and heater core. A blown hose will allow that coolant to leak out, potentially causing catastrophic overheating to the powertrain in seconds.


    That’s why it so important to have your car or truck’s belts and hoses checked regularly, and to have them replaced when they become worn. Because new hoses and belts are relatively inexpensive when compared with the costs you could incur if they fail on the road. Not to mention the inconvenience of being stuck at the most inopportune moment, often in a place you’d least like to be stranded.

    Your local Cottman center is here to help. Their technicians are only too happy to check your car’s belts and hoses for wear every time you bring your car in for service. And they’ll be happy to show you any wear they discover, and make repair recommendations that’ll keep your car running dependably for years to come.

    When was the last time you had your car’s belts or hoses replaced? If it was more than a couple years, give your nearby Cottman center a call and set up a time to bring it in and have them checked.

    Because the best time to have your car’s hoses or belts replaced is before they leave you stranded.

    • Last year we had a transmission that needed to be rebuilt in a 2009 Subaru Forester and brought it to Cottman based on their reviews. Greg and his team were sympathetic to the huge repair bill I was going to have, and looked for any way to safely save money. We also went ahead and replaced the timing belt and water pump based on the mileage. Having never been there before I called a few places to check that their estimate for that wasn't too much. The price was right in line with other reputable shops. 1 year later the transmission is still shifting as it should. Recently the same car had several other issues come up and I decided to try a shop down the street for diagnostics. Some of the numbers seemed a bit steep, so I took the car to Cottman for a second opinion. Greg, John and crew confirmed the issues, but the cost of the repairs seemed on par with my Google searches and I really felt comfortable having the work done there. I told them I need the car to be able to take a trip to Chicago and back, and they listed everything out in order of importance/ safety. To some it up, when we drop our cars off at Cottman, I don't feel like I'm being up sold a bunch services the vehicle doesn't need. And they stand by their work!

    • Have used Cottman transmission several times now on 1998 E150. Always professional, honest & fair priced. Greg will take the time to talk & explain the repairs needed even though the shop is busy. Would be my 1st recommendation to a friend needing repairs!

    • We love Greg and his team. They do a great job with our older vehicles, and they don't nickel and dime us. They are very honest about what needs to be fixed now, and what still has life in it.

    • Cottman handled my manual clutch replacement with exceptional service. After replacement, the truck drove like new again with the exception of a newly leaking axle seal. Cottman continued to take the truck in to resolve at no additional charge. Exceptional service and communication throughout the entire process. I highly recommend.
