Eugenio

Within one day of the quote, he arrived on time to replace the serpentine belt on my van, but diagnosed a bigger problem which was why it broke in the first place. He had to come back two additional times, but arrived on time each time. The overall cost, while three time more than quoted, was still much cheaper than I would have paid at the shop. He left the area clean and we are completely satisfied. Would definitely use him and this service again.

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.
