How To Check Engine Drive Belts - Routing

Inspect your serpentine drive belt every 10,000 miles. Look for cracking. Small cracks are normal. Large, deep cracks are a sign that the belt should be replaced.

Once you've determined that your serpentine belt needs to replaced you can search online for the specific part and have it sent directly to your home.

    2003 Kia. Replaced bad alternator. Belt broke after a few minutes. Now cannot find a felt that fits correctly. Have been to numerous parts stores and paid an outrageous amount for one from KIA dealer and it still does not work.

    I've searched just about everywhere and can't seem to find a specific serpentine diagram for my 2015 GMC Yukon. I've viewed the diagram for the 5.3L V8 trucks but that's not the correct diagram for my vehicle. Please help. Thank yoh

    how do itighten a serpintine belt on a 2005 dodge 1500 4x4

  • In reply to: Guest - kevin

    There is no way to tighten the belt yourself like on older carts and trucks. Newer vehicles have a belt tensioner that takes core of that automatically.

    My 2007 pontiav g6 doesn't shift out of 1st gear. Could u please give me s good answer, my mechanic friend said try solenoid assembly.

    In reply to: Guest - lori baker

    Yes, it could be a solenoid or it could be the trans is shot. The computer would have to be scanned to see what the trans is doing to determine what is wrong.
