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.

My 2007 Cadillac SRX AWD V6 was pinging on acceleration, had lost engine pep and the gas mileage had dropped to about 10 miles per gallon. The car has 97,000 miles on it and Cadillac recommends changing spark plugs at 100,000 miles. I called Cadillac and got a quote of $ 550. Wow! I called your mechanic and got a quote for $ 299.00. I asked for Patrick, who I had used before. Patrick came and and did a pretty involved job disassembling the top of the engine to reach the spark plugs and replaced them in about 3 hours. Patrick noted that the old plugs were very worn and that the spark plug tubes and the spark tubes had oil at the bottom of them. He told me that might be because the seal at the bottom of the spark plug tubes had failed, allowing oil from inside the valve cover to get into the spark plug tubes. I did some research and found that these seals failing is a relatively common issue in SRX's as well as other vehicles. The seals are not expensive but it appears that to replace them, the top of the engine would need to be disassembled again plus the valve cover on each side would also have to be removed, Then the seals could be installed and everything reassembled. That's most likely an expensive job. I drove the car after the new plugs were installed. Quite a difference. The car has its pep back, the mileage is starting to rise back to normal levels, and although I still get a slight ping at times, at this point it is about 90 % less than I was getting. My question is if I do nothing about the spark plug tube seals, will my issues return? Notes about this indicate that at some point the spark plugs are fouled enough to cause engine error faults and misfires if the spark plug tube seals are not replaced. Now I have to decide if I want to spend the money to have the new seals installed or take my chances and see what happens. If you read this Patrick, I would appreciate your best guess. Patrick is a very good mechanic. My dad ran an auto parts store, a garage and a machine shop for 25 years so I do know a few things about cars and know a good mechanic when I see one. If you need an excellent mechanic who is also honest, look no further than Patrick.
