The serpentine belt drives many important components under the hood such as the power steering, alternator, and air conditioning on most cars. And while the belt doesn’t typically need adjustments thanks to an automatic tensioner, it does wear out over time.
A broken serpentine belt can leave you stranded because it will stop turning the alternator which is the source of power generation for your vehicle. You will also lose power steering because this belt also drives the power steering pump. Bring your vehicle to Scotty’s Transmission & RPM Automotive to have your belt inspected. Inspecting the belt for wear and having a worn one replaced can prevent a break down. You can go to our website to schedule an appointment. www.scottystransmission.com or www.rpmautomotiveinc.com
