Automotive Parts: Automotive Belts

Auto Repair For Illinois: Palatine 60067 | Arlington Heights 60004 | Streamwood 60107

Automotive Parts - BeltsIn most cars there is just one belt, a serpentine belt, that is responsible for powering the water pump, the power-steering pump, and various other accessories.  In older cars each car function had a separate belt that powered it.

Belts wear out from use and will eventually crack and decay from environmental factors. If you have individual belts and a belt breaks you will lose the function of that part that the belt was powering. If you have a serpentine belt and it breaks  all of the parts will stop working and there could be engine damage due to overheating.
