Q: Q: Serpentine Belt

asked by on

Should I replace my serpentine belt at 83,000 miles or should I hold on to the recommended 100,000 mile interval to replace the serpentine belt, tensioner and water pump. Is it possible to just replace the belt now for preventative measures and do everything else at 100,000 miles.

My car has 83100 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
