What is the Serpentine Belt?

The flat serpentine belt drives the crankshaft pulley. This makes it essential for running all of the vehicle's accessories. It operates in coordination with the alternator, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump, and both water and air pumps. A tensioner, either hydraulic or spring-loaded, keeps the belt's tension ideal.

While this is something that will only infrequently need attention, it's a good idea to have a technician occasioning check it for wear. Signs of wear including squealing noises, slipping, or overheating. Overheating occurs when the belt's tension is incorrect. This prevents it from driving the water pump that cools the motor. Also, the check engine light may come on. If you notice these signs, have a technician inspect the vehicle.
