Belt and Hose Replacement

Check With Your Routine Vehicle Maintenance
A serpentine belt is a single, continuous belt used to drive multiple peripheral devices in an automotive engine, such as an alternator, power steering pump, water pump, A/C compressor, air pump, etc. The belt may also be guided by an idler pulley and/or a belt tensioner. It is more efficient than the older multiple belt system. By using a single, wider belt instead of multiple, thinner belts, the belt may be put under increased tension without stretching. Higher tension reduces slip, which increases belt life and mechanical efficiency. Reduced slip can allow the use of lower-ratio pulleys; this reduces the load on the engine, increasing fuel economy and available power. Additionally, it is easier for the driver to know when the belt has broken, since this will generally cause the steering resistance to suddenly increase on vehicles equipped with hydraulic power steering (if the vehicle's power steering system isn't linked elsewhere). With multiple belt systems, if a single belt breaks, such as the alternator belt, the driver may not realize that there is a problem before the engine becomes damaged.
A serpentine belt also is much easier to maintain and replace, since there is no need to remove multiple belts in order to replace one of them. The drawback of this single belt is that if the belt breaks, the vehicle loses all of its peripheral devices. Some vehicles use two serpentine belts for their system, such as the Manual Transaxle equipped Ford Taurus SHO, 95–99 DOHC Nissan Maxima and many BMWs.
Parts: It is important to have items such as belts and hoses regularly inspected and replaced with the right parts when needed
Genuine replacement parts, for example, are manufactured to the same specifications of the company's vehicles. A broken belt or ruptured hose can cause costly engine damage and travel delays. Regular vehicle maintenance and inspections can help improve a vehicle's fuel efficiency, achieve peak performance and even help avoid major repairs down the road. We emphasizes the importance of technician training when it comes to getting superior maintenance. For instance, according to federal statistics and Automotive Service Excellence (ASE), only about half of the 820,000 auto service technicians in the U.S. are certified by ASE, an industry-recognized leader in technician certification.
