The drive belt, also known as the serpentine belt, connects the crankshaft to many of the vehicle’s accessories using several pulleys. It powers the alternator, water and power steering pump, air-conditioning compressor, among many others. Without it, these various equipment won’t have power and will fail to run or be very difficult to operate.
It’s usually rated to last for at least three years or between 60,000 to 100,000 miles, whichever comes first. Unfortunately, there are only a few warning signs before the drive belt snaps, so don’t be caught in the middle of the road with a broken one. If that happens, it’s game over.
