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.

Patrick

Outstanding! I wish Patrick was my go-to-mechanic where I live. I came to Las Vegas on business and noticed that my serpentine belt was coming apart. I searched for an auto repair shop and was told by the three shops that they were too busy. So, I took a chance on Your Mechanic. I made an appointment, provided my information, and as scheduled Patrick showed up and fixed the problem. The website, the telephone support and the onsite service and all very professional. I like how they keep you informed of what is going on before the mechanic arrives at your address. I will do this again, if I have a mechanical problem. Thank you!!!

Mark

Mark was very attentive. Kept me up to date on the status of my truck. It just so happens that my truck happened to have one thing go wrong after another and Mark came out to my house each time without complaint and eager to help. I jokingly told him,"Thanks for coming by, but I hope I don't have to see you again any time soon." With the exception of one misunderstanding, everything was great. Mark was intent on correcting the misunderstanding and showing that he has great customer service skills. Thanks!

It was a pleasure for me to be able to have Chris come out to service my chevy. I had a new serpentine drive belt put on. He was very early and went right to work. The more car repairs i have done with Chris the more i feel very comfortable with his service. You couldn't ask for a nicer person. I like how he always answers my questions about my car and how things work in the engine. I really like how i don't have to drive the car to a shop he comes to u. Thanks again Chris u rock. Erin
