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.

Tien
19 years of experience
My first time using this service was on March 11th, my power window motor and regulator went out so I ordered the parts online and booked an appointment to have someone come to my job and install it the mechanic that came out was Tien, he installed the parts that I had ordered online but told me that the part was bent somewhere and wasn’t working properly so I thought to myself here we go, I just wasted my money by having him come out and he can’t install it, but to my surprise, Tien was able to use spacers or something like that so that the window would work properly, he definitely did not have to do that by me ordering the part on my own, he went over and beyond to make sure my window was able to roll up and down and I could close my door, so since I had such a good experience when I received the recommendation via email regarding other service I should have done, and the price that it would cost, and the estimate was very reasonable I booked another appointment, that appointment was yesterday march 18th and that service was also excellent, so I think I’ve found my new mechanic.

Lucas

Lucas has done a couple of jobs for me. He was able to verify that the starter I had bought would fit my car, then he went to work and was done before the allotted time frame was up. He was a little late, but hey, LA traffic is terrible.

Rod
13 years of experience
Rod took great care of the car & suggested some up coming maintenance as this is an older car I have given to my son to drive. He did not try to pressure me into any additional services and was able to get the part and come back the same day. Rod is my new mechanic for both cars. Why would any one go to a shop and sit and wait to pay more money. I am a fan of this service!
