Jeff provided me with great service. He arrived on-time (actually he was early, which was even better). He listened to my complaint and quickly went about assessing the situation. After a thorough inspection/diagnosis he explained what the problem was and offered a solution. He made several suggestions for future work that I need to keep an eye on. His written/recorded report was comprehensive and professional. He took the time to answer all of my questions and made several helpful comments regarding my concerns. Overall, I was very pleased with Jeff's knowledge and professionalism. Whenever I need a mechanic in the future, I will most likely call on him. A Satisfied Customer, RJH (Bob)

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.
