Serpentine Belt

Serpentine Belt in Tri-Cities, WA

The serpentine is a long belt that mobilizes and delivers power to components in the engine like the alternator, water pump, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump, and air pump. These belts on average can last between 50,000–100,000 miles but can depend on the vehicle, conditions, and the amount you drive. Having this belt inspected during maintenance check-ups can prevent more serious problems.

Signs your serpentine belt needs replacing:

  • Strained or tight steering.
  • The physical belt is cracked.
  • Vehicle overheating.
  • High-pitch squealing sounds from the engine.
  • The air conditioning is not working.

Our technicians have the skills and tools to replace and secure your new serpentine belt and make sure further damage is not done.
