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.

Jose showed up at my location exactly on the dot for our appointment time. As soon as he got out of his truck I started to feel better. Right away his easy going manner and good humor at the end of a long 12 hour day put me at ease. The day before there had been talk of a cancellation due to lacking parts, but somehow he managed to get the parts he needed, (late on a Sunday night too) and made it to the appointment. He didn't waste any time getting set up and beginning to remove the parts that were in the way, all the while calmly answering my questions and telling me everything that he was doing. It was not at all what I expected. Growing up I thought that the only way to fix a car was to get super mad, yell a lot and throw at least one wrench. Well that's how dad did it anyway, but not Jose, even when the belt was being stubborn and some fingers may have gotten pinched, he kept his cool. I was amazed and impressed. After it was all done and we were done high-fiving (hey I held a flashlight), he proceeded to go over the engine and give me a short list of things I could fix myself, things that could wait and things that shouldn't. If I ever have another problem with the truck I will be looking him up. I simply can not say enough good things about the man, I would recommend him with confidence to anyone I know.

Steve was great and helpful. He fixed our timing belt, and after realizing that the serpentine belt was breaking down and showing and asking us, he went out and got a new serpentine belt and still fixed everything on time. He made great recommendations for needed repairs, and I would definitely choose him to work on my car again.
