Function 

The serpentine belt is a belt that helps run various parts of your vehicle like the power steering, alternator, and air conditioning. Without the serpentine belt, your vehicle will stop working properly and driving after it’s broken can do serious damage to the vehicle. This belt regulates a fluid movement of various parts in your vehicle to help your vehicle run as it should. Now that you know more about how it works, let’s see what you can do to take better care of it. 

Maintenance 

When your serpentine belt breaks, your car may stop running. This happens when your serpentine belt has not been replaced in some time. Serpentine belts should be replaced between every 60,000 to 100,000 miles. Because it takes so long for them to wear out, it is easy to forget about their maintenance. Schedule an appointment with one of our technicians to help you see whether your vehicle needs a new serpentine belt. Maintenance checks can help you avoid serious issues with your serpentine belt or other important car parts.
