Broken Belt | Wichita Auto Care

A broken belt can leave you stranded. Have the Wichita auto care experts at Tracy’s Automotive check your belts to make sure they’re in good shape.

If it’s going to happen, it will happen when you’re running late to an important appointment or headed to some fun event like the Wichita Sports Show. Everything seems to be fine, then, suddenly, your car stops running. Why? A belt broke.

A vehicle’s belts are essential to the cooling, air conditioning and charging systems of the engine,” the nonprofit Car Care Council notes. “Serpentine belts are used to turn the water pump, alternator, power steering and air-conditioning compressor. Older cars use V-belts for various accessories.”

A car’s belts are simple things and easy to ignore but they can determine if your car will run or just sit there. 

“Why risk being stranded when a bad belt can be diagnosed with simple routine maintenance?” said Rich White, executive director, Car Care Council. “Inspecting and replacing belts as specified in your owner’s manual will help you avoid the hassle and expense of a sudden breakdown.”

The council recommends that drivers s review the owner’s manual to ensure that belts are inspected and replaced at the proper intervals. If you’re like many drivers, you have no idea where your owner’s manual is. Or, if you do, you haven’t looked at it since the day you drove your car off the lot.

Make your life easier by letting someone else keep up with this task. Take your car to the Wichita auto care gurus at Tracy’s Automotive to have them check your belts as part of your routine maintenance schedule.
