As a Toyota certified service department, we offer a serpentine belt replacement service of the highest quality at Pappas Toyota.

The serpentine belt is a critical component that we can help you maintain, with routine inspections every 15,000 miles and replacement service when found to have lost integrity.

The ABCs of the Automotive Serpentine Belt

The serpentine belt is a long continuous loop that, when held up, is shaped like a circle. It is durably made because it accepts energy from the engine and delivers it into the accessories as it snakes around the accessories’ pulleys. It powers the air conditioning compressor, alternator, power steering, and water pump. As a durable automotive part, it can last 100,000 miles in favorable conditions. Still, it will require routine inspections and prompt replacement if found to have lost integrity.

The Importance of Serpentine Belt Inspections

The importance of routine inspections comes down to the belt’s essential role and the consequences of it breaking while driving. If the belt snaps while driving, the belt-driven accessories will immediately go offline. This includes the water pump needed to cool the engine as well as the power steering pump that helps you steer the vehicle easily. As you can probably guess, this is a major problem with engine overheating and your safety while driving.

What are the Warning Signs of a Faulty Serpentine Belt?

There are several telltale warning signs of a faulty serpentine belt. If you notice any of these warning signs, it is important to get an inspection promptly and replacement service as needed:

  • Visible cracking on the belt
  • Fraying
  • Squealing or whining noises
  • Power steering not working
  • Air conditioning not working
  • Engine overheating
  • Dead battery
