When I had mines done they called it a serpentine belt and the installation was quick and minimal under $100.00 including labor and the belt.AnswerAll cars have drive belts. If, however the car only has one belt and it "snakes" up and over the pulleys it is termed a "serpentine" (snake) belt because of the way it is routed around the pulleys. Older cars have usually 2 or 3 belts that do not overlap or go over/under the pulleys. The belts simply go around the outside of the pulleys and are tensioned by a manual adjustment. Serpentine belts usually have an automatic/no-adjustable tensioner for the belt. Hope this helps!
