Q: What is the name of the belt that control the water pump

asked by on May 13, 2017

I need to buy a replacement belt but everywhere I bring the old ripped one to. Nobody seems to know what it's called. I know it powers the water pump.

My car has 120000 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi There, What you are referring to is what is called a serpentine belt. This is a belt that powers the majority of the major engine components. I would suggest having a professional from YourMechanic come to your location to replace your belt.
