Adjust Drive Belts Service & Cost

What are drive belts all about?

The drive belts are connected to the crankshaft (a part of the engine), as well as to the alternator, air conditioning, and power steering system. The belts are responsible for transferring power from the crankshaft to these other systems. Over time, and especially if multiple systems that put stress on the belts are being used, the belts can grow loose, or unaligned. When this happens the belts will need to be adjusted so that they can return to their normal, optimal position.

Keep in mind:

  • If the drive belt is at all frayed or cracked it should be replaced instead of adjusted.
  • When the drive belt is adjusted, the drive belt tensioner and idler pulley should both be inspected.

How it's done:

  • Adjust the drive belts

Our recommendation:

Your drive belts should always be checked during tuneups and maintenance. During any kind of servicing your drive belts should be checked to see if they need to be replaced or adjusted.

What is a common symptom indicating you need to adjust the drive belts?

  • Squealing noise from the engine

How important is this service?

Your alternator, power steering, and air conditioning are all powered by your drive belt. The belt is connected to the crankshaft, and transfers power to these systems. As the belt is used and wears, it can grow lose, or begin to become unaligned. If the drive belt becomes loose, it won’t move as efficiently, and it won’t transfer power as efficiently. If the belt becomes unaligned, it can come into contact with parts of the engine, which can cause damage.

Isai

Mr. Rodriguez fixed my squeaking serpentine belt and did the best he could to revive my car battery (eventually had to replace it with a new one from AAA). He's considerate and respectful. Perhaps most important he's a professional, and I would hire him again. (I prefer him over the auto repair shops.) It would be nice if he could restore car paints, though. I may hire him to replace all four of my tires (if he does offer such a service).

Gustavo
15 years of experience
Mr. Gustavo G. is one of the best mechanic I have ever met. First of all he was very courteous to call me when he was going to be later due the appointment before mine. Secondly he is very knowledge to check my car and told me what was the problem. Then he replaced booster very quick long before my expectation without any messy. I had to go work after inspection, I left him working at my house. What surprises me was that when I got home from work I found my car was parked under the shadow of the tree, which shows he is very considerable person besides a good mechanic. The brake of car now feels great and safe. Definitely I will recommend him to others and use his service again.

Heliodoro

Heliodoro did a fantastic job. He showed up exactly on time (a couple minutes early actually) and was friendly, professional and courteous. He finished my brakes in just over an hour and I'm back on the road. I would absolutely book him for service again. Best part is I never even had to leave my house.
