In older models of cars, there were very few belts being used in the engine. Nowadays, there are a lot of additional components that are powered by a belt rather than under their own power. This is good in a way, but when you need a belt replacement, it means more than one engine component can fail.
All belts use the engines rotational force to power these additional accessories. These can include the following:
- Power steering
- Water pump
- Air conditioning unit
- Radiator fan
Aside from these, other components are used to help keep the belts in decent running order. Mobile Mechanic of Orlando can quickly check the condition of any belt to make sure it is in good condition.
