Belt Inspection and Replacement
AutoMetrics in Yakima is the best place to go to have your belts checked or replaced. There are many kinds of belts on your car, V belts, serpentine belts and timing belt. In reality all belts have one job and that is to turn something.
What time does to belts
As the belt ages, it stretches and becomes brittle. At that point it is no longer able to do its job. The timing belt keeps your engine in time. If the belt breaks, the engine can be damaged.
Changing your timing belt is essential for reliable operation. Timing belt intervals can only really accurately be replaced on a mileage based program as the belts can break when they really look good.
Serpentine belts are a multiple grooved belt that turns your accessories such as power steering, the air conditioning compressor, air pump and water pump. Usually if this belt breaks, the charge warning light will come on. Remember the water pump may not be turning so it is possible for your engine to overheat before the engine will stall due to a dead battery.
The third kind of belt is the “V” belt. These belts used to run everything. Now they are not seen much. The V belt is a belt that usually requires a little bit of adjustment from time to time. It is easy to inspect for glazing and cracks on this type of belt.
