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.

Peter

15 June 2015 Review: YourMechanic.com Recently, I had the opportunity to check out a service that I had, for quite awhile, wondered about and would it fit with the ever-changing consumer worldview. Okay, at least, here in the United States. YourMechanic.com offers to come to you and service your vehicle's needs. While you continue your work day; they continue theirs. When all is done, that's exactly that. They're done with their day, you're done with your day and the day-off your car unexpectedly took is also done. Now, you're back on the road or at least able to head out if there's someplace you have to be. Although this may not be a new service; it is for me. I'm glad I found it, used it and now I can recommend it. The mechanic I met, Peter, came with 35 years of experience, licensed, prepared and engaged. I haven't found that at decades old, established companies anywhere, ever. Perhaps, that old model, along with its particular brand of hassles and drawbacks is becoming obsolete. One thing for sure, it won't be missed by me. In as much as the auto/mechanic industry is not my primary area of expertise, allow the following illustration which draws on my personal background to drive home the point: If YourMechanic.com were to announce an Initial Public Offering (IPO) tomorrow, you bet you'd find me among those first in line positioned to grab up as many shares as possible for a long term "hold." Regards, David Duke, Phoenix, Arizona *Note: Please strike this note from the official review as it is intended for inter-office use only. Please feel free to correct any glaring typos I may have overlooked. I am submitting this with a deadline in mind.

Jeffrey worked on my neice's car twice and she was so pleased with the service and tech that there's no way I wanted to call anyone else! Right on time, got right to business, and clearly knew what he was doing! Would highly recommend Jeffrey to friends and family, and he will be the first person I call the next time I need a mechanic! Thank you very much!

Rodney

Rodney went above and beyond working on our 1993 Buick LeSabre. The auto had a start run briefly then stop and would not restart. Rodney replaced the suspected (code 18) part crankshaft positioning sensor, the crank pulley. Auto does not even start now. There could be other potential issues as is the case with the early mid 90's GM autos. There could be other suspected other parts and issues here. Though I do believe that your mechanic should send someone to further investigate this problem at no charge, after all the car did start now it does not!
