Drive Belt Replacement Service Savings Near Gonzales, LA

Drive Belt Replacement at Ascension Honda


The drive belt is the part of your car that drives the different mechanical components using energy generated by burning fuel. Unlike older models, which relied on a series of drive belts, new cars tend to have one long drive belt that weaves between different parts. The advantage of one drive belt is that it is less prone to breakage, as the layout can be so that the turning of components even each other out, and it is more efficient. However, when one drive belt breaks, all the components that rely on it cease to work. That is why the drive belt is considered an essential component. Fortunately, modern drive belts are less prone to breakage and require replacement once or twice in a car’s lifetime.

Use your manual to determine how many miles you can drive before checking your car’s drive belt. The mileage of a drive belt will vary by model and how you operate your car. Moreover, your manual might give driving pointers to cause minimal wear to your vehicle.
