Serpentine engine belts from Audi transport power to your vital automotive components from the crankshaft. The serpentine belt is a long, winding single belt that keeps your alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning and/or your water pump running. A worn-out belt can slip or break, creating noise and robbing each component of its power.
Airborne contaminants, such as pollutants, pollen, mold spores and microorganisms, can cause dust buildup and unpleasant odors to enter your vehicle’s interior, but can be filtered out via the ventilation system.
Hoses vary as much as the systems they’re used with. Each hose is manufactured for a specific use, such as gasoline, oil, brake fluid, transmission or engine coolant. Be sure to have your hoses inspected regularly for cracks or leaks.
The electric arc that a spark plug emits creates the ignition for the combustion (air/fuel mixture) needed to start and run your vehicle. By putting the engine’s pistons in motion, your vehicle powers up, and stays powered up.
