Kia Serpentine Belt Replacement

Local Certified Kia Serpentine Belt Replacement in Ann Arbor, MI

Your engine is the source of all the power in your car, providing the wheels and vital systems with the power necessary to run your vehicle. However, while the wheels need that power in the form of torque, there are other systems that need to be run by the engine, requiring a part of that power for their proper functioning. These systems are run by the serpentine belt, which runs from the engine to all the pulleys that drive these systems, and when it gets old, it needs replacement with an OEM serpentine belt from our parts department. That’s why we provide serpentine belt replacement at LaFontaine Kia of Ann Arbor.

What Is a Serpentine Belt?

The serpentine belt is a long rubber belt that weaves itself back and forth between various pulleys connected to your car’s systems. Because it snakes back and forth, it gets the name “serpentine”, meaning like a snake, and it runs from one system to the next, providing the power from the engine in the form of belt movement. That belt movement turns the pulleys that run your air conditioning, alternator, power steering, and other systems, causing them to function properly while driving. A serpentine belt and a timing belt are not the same belts, as the timing belt runs between two parts of the engine and helps it function as it should.

When to Get Your Serpentine Belt Replaced

The serpentine belt can last a long time, and in Kia vehicles, it’s recommended it gets changed every 50,000 to 100,000 miles, depending on when it becomes too worn to function properly. To know exactly when that is, Kia recommends your serpentine belt to be inspected regularly, which means letting our certified technicians look at the serpentine belt and let you know if it needs a replacement. If you leave your serpentine belt too long without inspecting it, it can snap and render all the systems that it runs useless.
