How do I know if my vehicles belts are worn?
Your car or truck may have one or more belts to help it run properly. In time and along with improper tension on the belts or worn tensioner/pulleys your belts can become worn and fail. This is why it is important to have your belts inspected every time you have your vehicle maintained.
If your belts are showing any of these signs, chances are you may need new belts:
- Dried out and cracked
- Seems loose or stretched out
- Squeals or squeaks when vehicle is running
Check your vehicle’s manufacturer recommendation on how often your vehicle’s belts should be replaced.
