Belt Maintenance

Belt MaintenanceQuality You Can Depend On

Our trained mechanics check your car for safety and let you know if it needs any additional service to be properly maintained.

What is a serpentine belt and when should I have it replaced?

The serpentine belt drives most of the power assisted components of your car including the air conditioning compressor, power steering pump, water pump and alternator.

The serpentine belt should be replaced immediately when it begins to show signs of wear. The number one mechanical reason for roadside assistance is a broken serpentine belt.

How does Quality Tune-Up help me avoid having my serpentine belt fail?

Our trained mechanics visually inspect your serpentine belt every time you come in for routine service such as an oil change or scheduled maintenance. We will let you know when it needs to be changed.


When your serpentine belt gets worn it no longer grips the pulleys of the components it drives properly. This may cause your alternator to not charge your system the way it should or your power steering to be jerky or your A/C compressor to run at less than full power.

Keeping your serpentine belt in good condition helps all of the components it drives work better and helps you avoid on the road breakdowns.
