Many parts under your vehicle's hood must move for it to run the way it's supposed to. Belts are what move them. Your serpentine belt is one of the most important. Working with drive belts, an idler pulley, and a belt tensioner, it moves parts in your power steering, alternator, and water pump systems and more. AC compressor and fan belts, on the other hand, move various heating and air conditioning parts. If you drive an older car, it may have a timing belt. A lot of newer models, though, have a timing chain instead. Both spin your vehicle's crankshaft and camshaft, helping its engine's valves and pistons work in sync. There are many other belts under your hood from the factory as well -- too many to name, in fact. They all age, and eventually, they can break down, too. If your vehicle isn't running well or at all, bad belts may be to blame.
What Are the Signs of Bad Belts?
Listen for squeals and look for damaged or loose belts. You can also start to have problems with your car battery and cabin lighting. Your engine can even misfire or overheat. To determine whether belts are the problem, run an inspection. Replace any affected belts if you need to. Otherwise, change them according to the mileage schedule in your owner's manual. You can order new ones online from our auto parts store. We carry only genuine Mopar belts, so, unlike aftermarket, they'll be guaranteed compatible with the model you drive.
