Absolutely excellent. He arrived early and worked efficiently. My wife and I were planning a trip for later that week and wanted the car to be road-ready. Patrick found another issue and came back the same day to fix it — definitely above and beyond. He explained everything he did and why it was necessary. I've often wished I knew a mechanic who I could trust to be honest and always professional, and Patrick fulfilled that wish. Will definitely be asking him to work on our cars in the future. Also, first time using YourMechanic — a top-notch, needed service.

He was very prompt and courteous. I will commend him for having to work in a very narrow area in my apartment's parking area. He was very concerned about making sure that he wouldn't be blocking anyone else at the complex. He was finished before the time specified and gave me sound advice to benefit me in the only repair needed. I hope we can work together again next time and will definitely tell more friends.

Rodney was punctual for a 7 am appointment and very friendly. He was quick and gave me all the info I need about my car. It was so wonderful to have my coffee and be cozy in my house on a Saturday morning and check off a chore at the same time. He will be my car for the next thing I need.

All about Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement

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.
