Serpentine Belt Replacement
Whether you drive a car, truck or SUV, a regular serpentine belt replacement is important preventative maintenance and helps keep your vehicle running safe and smooth.
How Does a Serpentine Belt Work?
Your car’s serpentine belt works by transporting power from the engine to the alternator, air conditioner, power steering and water pump.
These components can stop working if your belt fails, potentially resulting in difficult steering, engine overheating and other problems. To avoid damage to your vehicle and maintain safety while driving it’s important to get a serpentine belt replaced before it breaks.
Your Serpentine Belt Wears Over Time
Since serpentine belts are made of rubber they wear out gradually due to general use and constant heat from the engine.
An old or worn belt becomes brittle, causing cracking and fraying. It may even start slipping or producing an audible squealing sound when you drive; a sign your serpentine belt may need to be replaced soon.
How Often Should a Serpentine Belt Be Replaced?
As a general rule, you should replace your vehicle’s belt as preventative maintenance every 60,000 to 80,000 miles.
Check your vehicle owner’s manual for specific service interval recommendations.
Benefits of a Serpentine Belt Replacement
A serpentine belt replacement prevents you from being stranded if the belt breaks. It also protects your car’s engine from damage if you drive with a failed belt.
A new, functional serpentine belt can result in:
- An efficient, high functioning engine
- Quiet driving with no squealing
