Every Nissan car, truck, van, and SUV has a drive-belt system to power essential components. The drive-belt system relies on the serpentine belt that accepts engine power and snakes around a series of pullies distributing engine power into each component. The serpentine belt needs to be in good condition because it provides power for components, such as the water pump, alternator, power steering pump, and air conditioning compressor.
Serpentine belts are durable, but they can also get excessive wear and damages in certain driving conditions. If your vehicle has a worn, damaged, or broken serpentine belt, we invite you to get the serpentine belt service that you need from us at Rolling Hills Nissan. Our Service Department is conveniently located in St. Joseph, MO near Elwood, KS, and Savannah, MO.
