How Long Do Serpentine Belts Last?

In normal conditions on a recommended maintenance schedule, most modern serpentine belts are able to last between 50,000 and 100,000 miles. However, depending on the road conditions, weather conditions, and other variants, this range can differ, which means it’s smart to keep an eye out for warning signs of damage to see if you need your belt replaced. If you take your vehicle in for routine maintenance in Delray Beach, the technicians will likely inspect for damage.

How Do I Know it’s Time to Replace My Serpentine Belt?

If your serpentine belt needs to be replaced, you will likely witness one or more of the following symptoms:

  • Squealing and chirping sounds coming from under the hood of your car
  • Failure of vehicle systems like your power steering and air conditioner
  • Cracks and wear on the rubber of your serpentine belt when you pop the hood and have a look
  • Vehicle failure

What Happens if I Don’t Replace My Serpentine Belt?

If you don’t replace your serpentine belt when it shows signs that it’s time for a new one, then you’re risking the failure of a variety of different vehicle systems, including the power steering, alternator, water pump, and air conditioner.
