problem #1

Aug 272003

Liberty 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 42,209 miles
The air condition (A/C) hose broke and squirted oil on the serpentine belt, causing it to deteriorate and break. The hose appeared to be cut, which leads me to believe that a strand of the belt had broken and, by constantly whipping the hose, which is much too close to the belt, eventually wore through the hose. I lost both power steering and power brakes in the middle of the freeway at 60mph.
