When you think of the most important components in your vehicle, most people think of their engine, tires, transmission, and others, but if you’re forgetting about your belts, you’re missing out! You don’t think of them often, but you need your belts to ensure that your vehicle is in full working order. While most people tend to overlook some of the most important aspects of your belts, here at Jiffy Lube®, we’re here to let you know that a lot more goes into ensuring your belts aren’t malfunctioning than meets the eye.

What Do Your Belts Do?

Read a blog about automotive belts and you’re bound to see people making jokes about belts being for more than holding pants up. But here, that is not just a joke; it’s the truth. Bets are very similar to the digestive system in your body. Not because they digest your car’s food or anything, but rather, they are compressed and are carefully inserted in a manner so all of the complex components in your vehicle can operate efficiently, all at the same time.

Parts in Your Car That Rely on Your Belts

There are various parts in your vehicle that rely on your belts to operate properly. Here are just a few of the components that directly need your belts to operate properly:

● Air conditioning compressor
● Cooling fan
● Fuel injection
● Power steering pump
● And more…

While these are just a few parts of your vehicle that absolutely need to rely on the belt to operate effectively, other integral aspects of the car undoubtedly need to be protected. These are all absolutely critical to be aware of because you’re having operational issues, it may not even be the component itself; it could actually be your belts that are the source of the problem.
