Serpentine Belts: Preventative Maintenance 101

Hearing a loud squeaking noise from underneath the hood?  A terrible squeal when you turn your wheel?  All of a sudden lose your power steering or Air Conditioning?  You may be in need of a new serpentine belt or part of the belt system for your car.

The serpentine belt or belts on your car, like the tires on your car, wear out over time.  True, many of today's belts may have a lifetime of 100,000 miles or more, but many wear out sooner and it is a good idea to have your automotive technician inspect your belts whenever you have your car in for service.

The belt is not the only part of your serpentine belt system that can wear over time.  The pulleys and tensioners that allow the belt to travel smoothly through its track have bearings that can wear out and often lead to squeaking or mis-alignment of the belt which can create excessive wear on both the belt and the rest of the system.

At Quad's Automotive Service and Repair we can replace your belt today with trusted and long lasting belts by Bando, Dayco, NAPA and more.  We can also check to make sure that your pulleys and belt tensioners are in proper working condition so that you get the most out of your new belt.
