What is a Drive Belt?

The drive belts in your vehicle serve different functions and if any of them fail, it can lead to your car not running and potentially causing damage to other engine components. Therefore, regular belt inspections and timely replacements are crucial.

One type of belt is the timing belt, which is a notched rubber belt that coordinates the opening and closing of the engine valves with the movement of the pistons. It also helps the camshaft rotate along with the crankshaft. If you notice a slapping sound or experience a rough idle, it is likely an indication that your timing belt is becoming worn.

Another type is the serpentine belt, which is a long continuous belt that powers various engine components. Over time, it can become cracked, stripped, or lose tension. If you hear a squeaking or chirping noise, it is typically a sign that the serpentine belt needs to be replaced. It's worth noting that some older car models use v-belts instead of serpentine belts, but these have largely become obsolete in today's vehicles.

When Should You Get Your Drive Belt Replaced?

Drive belts are essential components, and fortunately, they typically don't require frequent replacement. In fact, they often last well beyond 50,000 miles. However, it's advisable to have them inspected annually. Apart from the mentioned slapping, squeaking, or chirping noises, there are several other indicators to watch out for that may indicate the need for a drive belt replacement:

  • Loss of power steering

  • Air conditioning failure

  • Overheating engine

  • Cracking, thinning or other wear-and-tear noticed during inspection

  • Ticking sounds

  • Engine misfires

Any of these issues could be signs you need a drive belt replacement, so make sure to have your belts inspected as soon as possible if you notice these problems occur.
