What Is a Serpentine Belt?

Serpentine Belt

Asking yourself the question, “What does a serpentine belt do?” As a vital component of your vehicle’s engine block, the serpentine belt powers your alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, and more. As you can imagine, it’s an important piece of equipment that needs to be maintained for optimal performance. Learn more about when to replace your serpentine belt and what may happen if you ignore any issues it presents with the experts at the Wolfchase Nissan service center, below.

How Long Do Serpentine Belts Last?

Generally speaking, modern serpentine belts should last between 50,000 and 100,000 miles. However, this number may vary depending on the conditions you drive in and other factors that may be difficult to gauge. For this reason, it’s smart to keep aware of symptoms that it may be time to replace your belt.

How Will I Know to Replace My Serpentine Belt?

When you pop the hood of your car to inspect the serpentine belt, do you see any cracks or other wear on the rubber of the belt? This, in addition to the following symptoms, is a clear sign that a belt replacement is in order:

  • Squealing and chirping sounds coming from under the hood of your car
  • Failure of systems like your power steering and air conditioner
  • Total vehicle failure

What Happens if I Don’t Replace My Serpentine Belt?

If you notice any of the symptoms described above while driving from Arlington to Memphis and you don’t replace your belt, you risk the failure of the power steering system, the alternator, the water pump, the air conditioner, and more.
