Purpose of Your Serpentine Belt

Your serpentine belt is located at the front of your engine. This belt is generally made of reinforced rubber that is both flexible and durable. The purpose of a serpentine belt is to help your water pump circulate coolant as well as provide power to your car's alternator to keep the battery charged.

Other accessories, such as your car's air conditioning and traditional hydraulic steering pump, also run off the same belt. The serpentine belt is not to be confused with your car's timing belt or chain. That type of belt is located under a cover and controls the timing of the crankshaft and valves.

Failure of Your Serpentine Belt

When you look under your hood, you should be able to see your car's serpentine belt and feel for damage (with the engine off). Before the break, these belts frequently show signs of wear with one of the most common signs being cracks and missing material. Serpentine belts sometimes stretch over time and you may hear a squealing as the belt fails to grip onto its pulleys. In some cases, you may notice problems with your battery or your car may run hot when the belt begins to fail.
