What’s That Sound?

serpentine-serviceIf you’re used to the sound of your vehicle’s running engine, you notice immediately when a previously unheard sound pops up. A high-pitched whine or lower-pitched grumbling/grinding sound can indicate problems with important components driven by the engine’s serpentine belt system, including the water pump and alternator. They may also be attributed to an idler pulley that maintains tension on the belt. Whatever the source, the noise shouldn’t be ignored, because it can foretell a failure that could leave you stranded.
