asked by on

Not sure how many drive belts i have besides serpentine belt.

My car has 300000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there:

Anytime you remove the timing cover you should always replace the seals; as they are easy to access since "you’re already in there". In order to give you further information about your belts, we need to know the make, year and model of your vehicle, but most cars and trucks have a serpentine and a drive belt.
