Serpentine Belt Service

What is the serpentine belt?

The serpentine belt found in your Kia is driven by the engine’s crankshaft and is a critical belt for the operation of your Kia’s accessories. This belt is flat with a ribbed surface so that it can work effortlessly. It brings two parts of your car together, those run by fuel and electricity. Since it runs consistently it becomes worn and can start to fail in its operation. When this belt begins to wear, it is time for a serpentine belt replacement service.


Inspecting and Replacing Your Serpentine Belt

When you have this service done, you can expect it to be a longer service where your Kia is left with the service department for most of the day. During the service, a certified technician will need to first run your engine and determine how the pulleys are operating. Once an initial inspection has been completed, the technician will then remove the old serpentine belt and replace it with a factory preferred option. The technician will also test the belt to ensure that it is properly placed and operating before releasing it back to you.

When do I need a technician?

The lifespan of a serpentine belt is around 90k miles for your Kia. If it has been at least this long since your last serpentine belt replacement service, then you should have this service completed soon. If you notice other things like the battery light coming on, or the feeling of a slip in the motor, perhaps like a belt slipping, you will need to reach out to the service center quickly. This procedure should be completed by a certified technician and not something completed at home. In order to access the serpentine belt, a number of specialized tools, time, and understanding of your Kia are required. A misplaced serpentine belt can be damaging to your Kia and cause significant engine damage if it is not properly placed.
