There are belts under the hood of your Honda for nearly every moving part it has. They make everything run the way it's supposed to.
They do more than turn a crankshaft, too. In fact, there are just about as many types of belts as your vehicle has systems.
Your serpentine belt is one important example. It works with crank and idler pulleys and tensioners, plus drive belts. Together, they move power steering, alternator, radiator, and water pump parts, among others.
Compressor belts and fan belts work with the serpentine belt. They move various heating and air conditioning parts.
Your timing belt coordinates the movement of the camshaft and crankshaft, helping keep auto parts from colliding with each other. Some Honda models, especially newer ones, have a timing chain instead. Both, however, help your engine pistons pump and your engine valves open and close at the proper intervals. All the other original belts your Honda has are too many to name.
Is your vehicle not running the way it should? Is it disabled? One belt or another might be the problem. Signs of bad belts include squeaking, looseness, battery and interior lighting trouble, and a misfiring engine, if not damage that's led to overheats or outright engine and systems failures. If you see these symptoms, run an inspection, and replace the affected belts.
Otherwise, change belts according to your mileage. For the she serpentine belt, that's every 90,000 miles. For the timing belt, it's every 60,000 to 90,000 miles. The timing chain, however, is designed to last the engine's lifetime. It'll be helpful to refer to your owner's manual's maintenance schedule for more info on what to do.
