Drive Belt Service Savings in Manassas, VA
Your car needs a properly functioning drive belt to do anything. The drive belt is a rubber belt that wraps around multiple engine components, serving to move energy produced by combustion to other mechanical components. It drives the alternator, which charges your battery. It also makes the air conditioner work by driving the compressor, and it keeps the engine cool by providing power to the water pump. Even power steering requires hydraulic pressure, which makes use of a pump driven by the drive belt. All told, if the drive belt gives out, your car will stop working.

When Do You Need a Drive Belt Service?
Engines put minimum stress on drive belts through the intuitive use of tension and torque. Drive belts are also tough and resilient. Your car manual should give you an idea of how many miles you can go before replacing your drive belt. On some cars, it lasts up to 100,000 miles, while others last fewer than 60,000 miles.
Knowing how to spot a worn drive belt will help you figure out when it needs to be replaced. Typically, a worn drive belt will show holes and cracks. It can also emit a rubbery squeak. The most common cause for a drive belt wearing out early is debris or water. If you have an oil or other fluid leak that gets on the belt, it is usually easier to replace it than to clean it. If you are still unsure whether your drive belt is worn, our technicians can let you know.
