The fan belt drives the fan, water pump, alternator, power steering, air conditioner and air pump... if the vehicle has all of these. The fan belt (often a serpentine belt) can slip without any real problem other than a little noise. The cam belt (timing belt) looks quite different and only drives the camshaft. The timing belt is designed to keep the camshaft and crankshaft in perfect synchronization. The timing belt has "lugs", or specially designed bumps in the belt that align with slots in the crankshaft pulley and the camshaft pulley. To protect the timing belt from grease, mud and other hazards, the timing belt is usually behind a fairly significant protective cover.
