About Toyota Drive Belt, Serpentine Belt
The Toyota drive belt is designed to run through a series of pulleys and tensioners to drive the components installed on your engine. Some of these parts include your air conditioner compressor, the alternator, the water pump and your power steering pump. Most of today's Toyotas will have a few different drive belts to move all of these extras. Modern drive belts are made with a material called ethylene propylene diene monomer (EPDM), which is a very resilient and long lasting rubber-like material.
Your drive belt or belts will be found in the engine bay, attached to the aforementioned accessories and components. Although it's made of a very durable rubber-based material, the drive belt still wears over time and it will have to be replaced at some point. A dilapidated drive belt may cause a loud squeal as soon as you start your Toyota. If your Toyota drive belt wears down, or breaks, your vehicle will not be able to drive safely or at all. It can also result in battery charging failure, an overheated engine, or extremely difficult and stiff steering. Most Toyota drive belts will last around 100,000 miles, or 5-6 years.
