All Cars Rely on Functional Belts

Most drivers in Crystal Lake and the United States underestimate the importance of a serpentine belt that's standard under the hood of all passenger vehicles on today's roads. This critical automotive part synchronizes several installations, including the engine block and alternator. Having a continuous span, a serpentine belt smoothly rotates and moves in precise cycles. It's worth noting that a vehicle will come to a halt if this part stops working. The odometer reading in the cockpit is usually a good indicator of the replacement schedule for a belt.

Under normal driving conditions, you should replace this part after 100,000 miles. However, some sports cars, pickup trucks and SUVs might need more frequent replacements because of higher demands. Volkswagen Of Crystal Lake employs certified technicians who can select custom serpentine belts for used vehicles. Additionally, cars that have been on the road for a few years might need some basic adjustments in belt tension.
