Abdul was great. He came and fixed my car in no time. I would have done the work myself but I didn't have the right tools for the job. Thanks Abdul for fixing my car in little to no time at all.

Kia Rondo - Serpentine/Drive Belt - Atlanta, Georgia
Melvin greatly exceeded my expectations. He not only performed the agreed upon service, he gave my car a general rundown, finding a battery and brakes in serious need of replacement, as well as adding a quart of oil to a dangerously low engine. This was all without my asking. I will absolutely use him again, and would encourage everyone to do the same.
Nissan Sentra - Serpentine/Drive Belt - Atlanta, Georgia
Melvin did a fantastic job with giving me the details on my repair and repair options. He told me my future repair options to get the problem fix but I didn't get the email with the details. Overall Melvin did good, I just need the email with the details to have him come back to complete the repair. :-)

Honda Pilot - Serpentine/Drive Belt - Atlanta, Georgia
After going to a traditional car repair shop and getting a ridiculously high quote and terrible service, I decided not to give them my business and booked with your mechanic. Mark was so thorough, and spent hours and hours making sure everything was just right. It was clear he had pride in his work and even told me of services I didn’t need and took pictures to show me and explain why. He was fantastic and he made it so convenient and affordable for me. And now my car is running better than ever. Thank you so much! Will definitely use again!

Mazda Protege - Serpentine/Drive Belt - Atlanta, Georgia
Marko is a very professional mechanic who showed up on time to fix my car. Before beginning he analyzed the issue and decided where to begin. He walked me through what he was doing step-by-step with explanation. Of course he fixed the issue within an agreeable amount of time. After fixing the issue, he took the car for a test drive to see if everything was working properly. I highly recommend Marko- he is efficient, knowledgeable, friendly, and trustworthy.

Serpentine/Drive Belt Replacement Service

What is a serpentine belt and how does it work?

A serpentine belt is a relatively long, flat, multi-ribbed belt that is driven by the engine’s crankshaft pulley. The belt drives many, and often all, of the engine accessories such as the alternator, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump, water pump, and air pump. The serpentine belt is tensioned by a hydraulic or spring-loaded automatic tensioner. Some older cars use a serpentine belt to drive most accessories but will also have a shorter v-style belt to drive, for example, the power steering pump.

Belts

When to consider replacing the serpentine belt:

  • Regularly scheduled maintenance. Typically, belt manufacturers recommend belt replacement at 90,000 miles. However, the belt must be inspected for wear or damage at regular intervals prior to this high mileage.
  • Squealing noise, belt slippage, visible belt damage. Should the belt fail or wear out prematurely, you may hear noise or you may see visible signs of deterioration such as missing chunks of rubber, excessive cracking, or a shredded appearance on the edge of the belt.
  • Battery Light. A loose belt, perhaps caused by a defective tensioner, may not drive the alternator at adequate speed and thus the battery may discharge, causing the warning light to illuminate.
  • Engine overheating. Often, the serpentine belt drives the water pump. In those applications, if the belt breaks the engine will overheat in seconds to minutes. If the belt is inadequately tensioned, you may notice higher-than-normal engine operating temperature.

How do mechanics replace the serpentine belt?

  • Prior to removing the belt, the mechanic must run the engine to determine if the idler pulley and the belt tensioner are noise-free. Those rotating components have grease filled bearings and are subject to wear. In addition, the mechanic will ensure that all pulleys and accessories are turning in the same plane. These steps help make sure your new belt will operate trouble-free for its full-service life.
  • The belt’s routing path through the various components is noted. The belt tensioner is released, usually with a wrench or lever, to release the tension from the belt. With the tension off, the belt slides off the pulleys.
  • All rotating components — that is the alternator, air conditioner compressor, etc. — are checked for smooth operation and no noise.
  • If everything checks out, the new belt is slipped over all of the pulleys while holding the tensioner away from the belt. Once the belt is centered on all pulleys, the tensioner is released and the installation is complete. The engine is run to ensure normal operation.

Is it safe to drive with a serpentine belt problem?

No. Should the belt have visible damage, you risk unexpected and sudden breakage that could potentially leave you stranded. Serpentine belt problems that result in the alternator not charging may cause the battery to discharge, which will result in loss of electrical power to the vehicle. Additionally, if a deteriorated belt breaks and that belt drives the water pump, the engine will overheat in a matter of seconds.

When replacing the serpentine belt keep in mind:

  • On many cars, the expected service life of a serpentine belt is around 90,000 miles. Should the belt fail well prior to that, a very careful inspection should be performed to check for out-of-alignment pulleys, a possibly out-of-position crankshaft harmonic balancer on which the drive pulley is mounted, binding pulleys, or a defective belt tensioner.
  • Attention should always be given to serpentine belt routing, since proper routing is critical to proper belt tension, and function of the driven components.
  • Sometimes it is difficult to distinguish serpentine belt related noise from other engine noises. In these cases, a mechanic will determine the origin of the noise by momentarily running the engine without the serpentine belt attached.
