Belts

Worried about your brakes? We offer a FREE evaluation to diagnose any issues.a

Belts are critical components of your vehicle’s engine and drivetrain, responsible for driving various systems such as the alternator, power steering pump, water pump, and air conditioning compressor. Over time, belts can wear out, crack, or become loose, leading to potential engine damage or failure of essential systems.

 

With experienced technicians and quality parts, we provide reliable belt services that you can count on. Whether it’s inspecting, adjusting, or replacing belts, we’ll ensure that your vehicle’s engine and systems operate smoothly and efficiently.

Types of Belts

Serpentine Belt Replacement

Example: You notice a squealing noise coming from the engine compartment, especially when you accelerate or turn on the air conditioning. Concerned about potential belt issues, you bring your car to Plateau Motors for an inspection. The technician examines the serpentine belt and finds signs of wear and cracking. They recommend replacing the belt to prevent it from failing unexpectedly.

By replacing the worn serpentine belt, you prevent potential damage to other components driven by the belt, such as the alternator and power steering pump. Additionally, a new serpentine belt ensures proper operation of essential systems, reducing the risk of breakdowns and ensuring reliable performance.

Timing Belt

Found in some vehicles, the timing belt synchronizes the rotation of the engine’s camshaft and crankshaft, ensuring proper engine operation.

Timing Belt Inspection

Example: Your vehicle’s manufacturer recommends replacing the timing belt at a certain mileage interval to prevent engine damage. Unsure if your timing belt is due for replacement, you schedule an appointment at Plateau Motors for a timing belt inspection. The technician inspects the timing belt and finds signs of wear and deterioration. They recommend replacing the timing belt and related components to prevent potential engine failure.

By replacing the timing belt according to the manufacturer’s recommendations, you prevent potential engine damage or failure due to a worn or broken timing belt. A new timing belt ensures proper synchronization of the engine’s camshaft and crankshaft, maintaining engine performance and reliability.

Accessory Drive Belt

Also known as V-belts or drive belts, these belts transmit power from the engine to various accessories like the water pump, power steering pump, and air conditioning compressor.

Accessory Drive Belt Replacement

Example: You bring your car to Plateau Motors for routine maintenance, including an inspection of the accessory drive belt. The technician examines the belt and notices signs of wear, such as cracks, fraying, or visible damage.


By replacing the worn accessory drive belt, you ensure that essential accessories like the water pump, power steering pump, and air conditioning compressor continue to operate smoothly and efficiently. A new accessory drive belt reduces the risk of unexpected belt failure, preventing potential damage to other engine components and ensuring reliable performance of vital systems. Additionally, a properly tensioned and aligned accessory drive belt minimizes noise and vibration, enhancing overall driving comfort. With Plateau Motors’ commitment to honesty and reliability, you can trust that your car receives the attention and service it needs to stay in top condition.
