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.

Robert
26 years of experience
I am very satisfied with Robert and the service. I honestly don't know how this could have worked out any better for me. He came a few minutes early, introduced himself and asked me to describe the problem. He knew exactly what to do and replaced the parts that I needed. He test drove my car to make sure everything was perfect. He showed me the bad parts and cleaned up when he was done. He's professional, very friendly, and went out of his way to accommodate me. I will recommend him to everyone I know. I should have used "Your Mechanic" years ago. Thank you

Jeffrey

Jeff contacted us via text an hour before our appointment time to let us know he was available to do the work on our vehicle earlier then expected, which we accepted. He showed up at our door thirty minutes later. He explained the service we had requested and he asked if we had any other concerns or questions, and we had none. He got right to work and after a little over an hour he had finished. He explained any issues he saw that might come up in the future. Jeff also answered all our questions about other estimates we had, Jeff, was very punctual, professional, and communicated well. I would recommend Jeff and we look forward to using his greatly appreciated services in the future.

Jose

I sure wish I had found the YOUR MECHANIC site two months ago. I know that I would have saved quite a lot of money using your services on my vehicles. Jose was EXCEPTIONAL in ALL aspects and got the job completed in the estimated time, even though the original Harmonic Balancer was quite difficult to remove from my Van. He also checked numerous things about my van to make sure all was okay and that impressed me. Thank you, Jose. I have already recommended you and YOUR MECHANIC to several friends and family.
