I have a 4 cylinder 1999 Toyota Camry and recently had a 60,000 mile service done on it. They replaced 3 belts. I thought all cars now had just the one serpentine belt. What\*s up?

Answers from the Automotive Experts

Lori Johnson, Owner and Instructor at Ladies Start Your Engines Dear Peggy, It really depends on the manufacturer and which vehicle you're driving. The 99 Camry has a belt for the Power steering, the alternator and the A/C compressor. In some ways this is good. If one belt breaks, you may still be able to drive the vehicle..that's not always the case with a serpentine belt. Lori Johnson
