Drive Belt Information

Your car’s drive belt is an integral part of the engine, driving almost all of the fundamental car engine parts. The drive belt itself is made from rubber and has the job of operating multiple mechanical parts at once. The taut belt that wraps around the pulleys attached to the crankshaft is responsible for keeping your car’s steering, alternator, water pumps and air conditioning in working order. As well as helping to drive all of the above, a high-quality alternator belt will cause less friction and improve the performance of your car.

Despite being a highly durable material, excessive heat and pressure can cause the drive belt to deteriorate over time. As professionals, we recommend that you replace your car’s drive belt every 45,000 to 70,000 miles. One of the most common signs that your alternator belt needs replacing is a squeaking or chirping noise coming from the engine. If left alone while faulty, this could cause your engine to overheat and potentially break down.
