Serpentine Belt Maintenance & Replacement Service

The serpentine belt can be seen when opening the hood as it is positioned at the front of the vehicle. When the engine is running, it is the long continuous belt that moves. This movement is the serpentine belt delivering energy to power the alternator, power steering pump, A/C compressor, and water pump. This belt is durable but should be inspected at the recommended miles and replaced if it loses integrity. Serpentine belt replacement involves removing the old belt, inspecting the drive belt pulleys, and installing a genuine Chevrolet OEM part at the specified tension.

Serpentine Belt Inspection: When is Replacement Needed?

The serpentine belt can show signs of trouble that are beneficial to know. It is important to replace the old belt if you experience any of the warning signs of it losing integrity. If you experience any of these symptoms, you should get an inspection by a certified technician because you likely need a serpentine belt replacement service:

  • Squealing when starting the engine
  • Physical belt defects – if the belt has excessive cracking, fraying, or rib separation, the belt is at increased risk of breaking. If your belt has wear and tear but you aren’t sure if it should be replaced, you should get a prompt inspection and maintenance guidance from an expert.

 

What Happens if the Serpentine Belt Breaks?

It’s essential to know the signs of a broken serpentine belt in case this happens to you while driving. Several vehicle accessories will immediately stop working, and the symptoms are fairly obvious. With the serpentine belt not delivering energy to these accessories, you should stop driving if you notice these problems because the engine will overheat and it might be impossible to steer:

  • Hot engine – the engine will overheat within a minute or two with the water pump offline
  • Difficult steering – it will be difficult or impossible to rotate the steering wheel with the power steering pump offline
  • A/C not working – the air conditioner cannot generate cold air with the compressor offline
  • Dead battery/dashboard warning light – the battery will not get recharged with the alternator offline. You will likely notice the battery charging system warning light is on.

You can prevent these outcomes by getting the serpentine belt maintenance recommended now.
