Serpentine Belt Service | Copperas Cove, TXImagine your car without the air conditioner compressor, air pump, alternator, cooling fan, power steering pump, water pump, and other accessories. Thatís exactly what youíll have if your serpentine belt snaps. So itís important to have it inspected regularly, and replaced according to your manufacturerís recommended schedule.

As part of the complete maintenance check you receive with every full-service oil change, we visually inspect your carís serpentine belt. If it has more than four cracks per inch in the ribbed section of the belt, and/or cracks that penetrate more than halfway through the thickness of the belt, it should be replaced.

Still, the serpentine beltís appearance doesnít always reveal whether itís on the verge of failure. Be sure to have it replaced on schedule ó no matter how it looks. For most vehicles, this only takes about 30 minutes.
