The belts in your vehicle are important parts that you should be maintaining. They help with the operation of various components and systems, so if they start to fail, the effects can trickle down to other areas. The timing and serpentine belts are just a few of the ones in your vehicle. Each has a specific job to do. The timing belt works in your engine to synchronize rotation of the crankshaft and camshafts to open and close the engine's valves at the proper times (thus called the timing belt). The serpentine belt is a snakelike belt that winds its way through your car, keeping your alternator, power steering pump and air conditioning running smoothly. It is important that these belts be maintained or replaced as needed. If you are hearing squealing noises coming from the front of your vehicle, this can indicate slipping or misalignment of a belt. You also might start to notice a loss of power steering or AC, which can indicate a failure altogether of the serpentine belt. The engine might start to overheat. You can also inspect belts for cracks and wear. You can find OEM belts for your Kia here on our site when the time comes for replacement.
