Top-notch service. If there were 10 starts, I would gladly give him 10. Kept us well-informed before, during and after service. He detected couple of other problems but was honest about 1 of them not being high-prioirty fix. Absolutely amazing. Super friendly, knows what he's doing, super honest, etc..etc. Keep up the great work! Mark will be my mechanic for through YourMechanic.

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.
