Rather than using many belts to operate just about every unit at once, the serpentine belt of your Kia is put to use to turn on many automobile accessories, including the alternator, air-conditioner compressor, and PS pump. Built to be hard-wearing, the Kia serpentine belt usually lasts for a long while, possibly about over 100,000 miles without regular service needed. Even if the multi-vee belt can outlast several V-belts, this is meant to fail over the years, particularly once exposed to far too much pressure and high temperatures in the engine compartment.
As soon as you get to hear squealing whilst driving, you have to find out if this is coming from an out-of-line pulley or a terrible tensioner right before you swap the serpentine belt of your Kia . You will probably see damaged spots on the ribs or cords of a bad Kia serpentine belt. The serpentine belt won't instantly stop operating as soon as the belt starts squealing or gets frayed-still, you should look at it and get a high-grade OE replacement for your Kia if necessary.
