Your rating system didn't seem to work on my computer, if not I would give my mechanic Peter 5 STARS. He was polite, answered my questions and took care of my car. This is really a good service I will continue to use in the future when needed. Good bye dealerships, goodbye Jiffy Lube, Your Mechanic has me sold with how easy it was to do business.

This is really not Robert's fault but it would have been a perfect experience if this didn't require two appointments since wrong part was ordered. There is no reason not to have the right parts with a VIN from the start.

All about Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement

The serpentine/drive belt or v-belt is a rubber belt that connects the alternator, power steering, and AC to the part of the engine (crankshaft) which transfers the power from the engine to those components. Without this belt, the battery will not get charged and none of the electrical accessory components in the car will work. The serpentine belt and v-belt are also known as "drive belts." Because of the high amount of heat in the engine, the belt can develop cracks over time and eventually break. If the belt breaks, the steering wheel will be difficult to turn and driving will be hazardous. In some cars, water pumps are driven by the drive belts. If the belt breaks, water and coolant needed to keep the engine cool will not properly flow to the engine. The engine will overheat, potentially causing severe damage.
