Tien arrived 45 minute earlier than the appointment time and it worked out fine for me since I was off work and sitting at home waiting anyway. Tien is friendly and courteous. He switched out the faulty sensor with a brand new one in 45 minutes and tested for success. He also did some routine checks for my car to ensure everything was ok. Tien gave me some car maintenance advice and told me what parts of my old car I need to pay attention in the near future. This is my 2nd time using Yourmechanic.com and so far it has provided excellent service to me and my car.

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.
