Belt Replacement In Colorado Springs, AK

Depending on the make and model of your car, the engine may comprise of a different configuration of belts, but whatever the configuration, most of these play a vital role in the performance of your car, and in the case of some, they are critical in the car actually running.

Belts use the rotational force of the engine to run other accessories on the car, this can be the alternator, power steering, water pump and the air conditioning unit. If one of these belts fail, the associated component will also stop working. Our mobile mechanics make it a habit to check the belts during any repair to make sure they are replaced before the end up failing.

    Serpentine Belts

    This belt rides along a series of pulleys which sit on the front of the engine, these can wear and fray due to excessive heat and the stresses which they endure during repetitive rotations. When these belts are being checked, they should show no signs of cracks, fraying or contamination from leaking fluids. If there are any signs of this, it can cause the serpentine belt to either crack or slip, this would cause excessive heat and the chance for the belt to melt before breaking can be quite common.

    By the design of the engine, it is the serpentine belt which can drive many other functions, so if this breaks there will be more than one function that will not be available in the car, one of which can be the water pump, and if this belt does fail, you could notice a rapid increase in engine temperature as the water is unable to travel round the radiator for cooling. This increase in engine temperature can also bring with it other major problems if it is not noticed straight away.
