There are many parts at work under the hood of your Toyota. Most depend on the high-quality original belts that were installed at the factory in order to work. Belts help move all sorts of parts, from the engine crankshaft to the power steering. There are two types of belts in most vehicles. The first is the timing belt. This notched rubber belt helps the crankshaft rotate the engine's camshaft. If it were to break, your engine would stop right away. This could be harmful. The other belt you'll find is the serpentine belt, which also goes by drive belt. These are more plentiful, since they provide power to a variety of parts such as the AC compressor and alternator. When one of these fails, the part powered by it will no longer work.
