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.

Grzegorz was exactly what i was looking for. My sons Porsche 914 was driven every day up to five years ago then had some fuel injector issues and has sat idle for five years not able to start. I had trouble finding a 914 mechanic (rare) who would get it going let alone come to the house! Grzegorz went through the basic engine and got it running in an hour. I have him coming back for a full tune up. If you are looking fro a very trustworthy mechanic , Grzegorz is your man

Chris probably saved me thousands in repair bills. If Chris hadn't found all of these computer error codes in his inspection, I may have ended up buying the car and sunk another $5k into fixing all of these electrical issues.

Alex is an amazing mechanic and a gentleman. He pays attention to customers concerns and is highly competent and knowledgeable as a mechanic. Besides that he is just a really respectful, polite person and will not rush or ignore you as a customer. I believe he goes beyond and does more than other mechanics do and the fact he is qualified to examine and service luxury and high performance cars makes a difference too. When he did a pre-vehicle inspection for me on a Porsche the appointment went smooth and it was hard to tell it was the first time we ever met, that is how a experience should be in this industry but frequently is not. Alex does not sugar coat mechanical issues either. He is honest, upfront, and states the facts whether you as a customer may or may not like the facts, and truly the automotive industry needs that. I think it is cool that he can meet you at your house or even place of business to service your car and do any repairs needed versus having to go to a mechanic shop and sit and wait. I would highly recommend Alex to anybody and everybody, he deserves your business and customers deserve his mechanical excellence in skill and honesty this gentleman displays.

To say that getting your car repaired with Your Mechanic, and with Robert specifically, is a horrible idea is an understatement. I only scheduled an oil change. Shortly afterwards, my car began to make a loud noise from both the engine and the rear passenger side.The noise only gets louder. According to the report, there was nothing wrong with my vehicle prior besides being low on washer fluid.. To make matters worse, the individuals in the call center are rude and unprofessional. They are refusing to honor my warranty and I have left a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. I may have to get my car repaired elsewhere. I'll just sue in small claims court.
