Vehicle engines have several different belts, each of which is a critical to proper functionality. These belts can be tricky because they are not visible when you open the hood. It is important that you replace the belts around 60,000 to 100,000 miles. When it comes to belts, Excel Automotive Repair has you covered.
There are warning signs that your belt needs to be replaced. Typically belt issues first manifest themselves with erratic engine behavior. Sometimes at higher rpms the engine with rev make some strange noises. This is likely due to one of the belts being worn out and slipping. Keep your eye out for your exhaust being smokier than usual. If it takes several tries to start your vehicle, that could be due to a belt issue as well.
