Richard

The part had not yet arrived on the day of service and Richard called me first thing in the morning to let me know. He kept in touch with me and was on the lookout for the part. He arrived only 30 min after the appointment time with the part! He quickly installed my fuel pump and was on his way. I later found out there was another issue with the car, which hadn't been diagnosed before (he had not done the initial diagnosis) and he quickly came back out to take a look at it. Throughout the process Richard has been polite and understanding.

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.
