Serpentine Belt in Scaggsville, Laurel, Fulton, Clarksville & Columbia MD

Are you aware of that Long Belt that Snakes around the front of your engine? It's called the serpentine belt. The serpentine belt is driven by the engine as it turns. It makes the Alternator, air conditioning compressor, power steering pump and on some vehicles it also runs the water pump, radiator fan & even your power brakes. To say this belt is Important would be an under statement!

Serpentine Belt Scaggsville

While you're near Laurel, Scaggsville, Columbia, Maple Lawn Farms, Fulton or even Highland MD, if this belt or it’s tensioner were to fail, you would lose all of the above systems, your battery would quickly run down, you would lose Power steering and your engine would soon overheat. If this were to happen on I-95 or inter-state 70, at High speed it would be a real problem.
Serpentine Belt Replacement
Most Owners manual do not have a suggested time change interval, instead the belt and its related components are to be inspected and then advise on replacement. Here at Thoroughbred Auto Care we have been trained to look for certain tell tale signs & recommend replacement. We have found a safe point is 3-4 years or 50,000 miles to be safe preventive replacement time.

We Highly recommend you have the belt & tensioner inspected before you travel this winter, while the College kids are home for the Holidays and especially if you don’t know when it was last replaced. Stephen, Owner of Thoroughbred Auto Care
