Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement Service & Cost

What is the Serpentine/Drive Belt all about?

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.

Belts

Keep in mind:

A car will either have a serpentine belt(s) or v-belt(s). Cars that have a serpentine belt will have one or two belts. Most modern cars have only one belt, driving all the engine accessory components. If the car has v-belts, it will most likely have four belts.

How it's done:

  • Inspect the belts for cracks.
  • Remove and replace any damaged belts.
  • Inspect pulleys and bearings.

Our recommendation:

A mechanic should inspect the drive belts during oil changes. If you hear a squealing noise from the engine, it is likely that the drive belts need adjustment or replacement.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Serpentine/Drive Belt?

  • Squealing noise coming from engine if the belt is loose or worn out.
  • Lack of steering if the belt is broken.
  • Battery Warning Light is on.
  • Engine overheats.

How important is this service?

The drive belts connect the engine to the alternator, air conditioning, power steering, and sometimes the water pump. These belts are how power is transferred from the engines to these other systems. When the belts break, the engine will be unable to transfer power to the alternator, air conditioning, and power steering. Since the alternator is responsible for charging your battery, a broken drive belt means that the electrical components won’t work in your vehicle. The power steering also will fail, which makes it difficult and dangerous to steer. If your car’s water pump is also connected to the drive belt then the engine will not have a properly functioning cooling system, and your vehicle will be likely to overheat.

Chris is the real car god not the other guy who claimed he was and literally destroyed my car. I was with this guy when he started working on my car until the end and I can tell how experienced he is. He came did his job with compatency and more than that, he fixed the other guy's mistakes. He works with passion and treated my car like his own car. Basically the best mechanic in this company.

Ben

Overall experience is just okay; however, I felt a sense of hustle and hurry in order to move to next (appointment? maybe, i just didn't know). The core work was done; however, like this one, the dashboard indicator lights was not set off while I was told by the technician that it was all done. I knew that it took a while for him to work on the indicator..Anyway, the dashboard light (break wear indicator light) was still not set off which should be done while replacing the pad and sensor. While there maybe other things that I would complain about, I will keep that off the line at this review for this task.

Shaun

I booked Shaun for oil change but also wanted him to diagnose my persistent light warning. Shaun was very courteous and did a thorough inspection of my car. He not only figured out the light warning ( turns out was due to 2 different types of bulbs used) but also created a thorough inspection report which was very useful. He is prompt and very knowledgable. I will use him again and recommend him for all other services.
