What an awesome experience! Total convenience, honesty, professional, and skillful service. Initially, I was a little apprehensive about trusting this company because I happened upon them on the internet. During the very first encounter, Chad, my mechanic immediately put me at ease with his professionalism and his knowledge as he carefully explained the problem and offered the solution. He conveniently went out and got the necessary parts and serviced my car, all in a timely manner. I have already recommended him to friends and family. I will also recommend him to my clients as well. I have also determined that Chad is my new mechanic! Lastly, YourMechanic is a great company, Chad is an awesome mechanic and it all added up to be a superb experience!!!! Thanks again Chad for a job well done.

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.
