Can cracked ribs under the left shoulder damage the spleen and cause diarrhea?

First, do not put off seeing a professional medical care provider. It is important now and for your future. Cracked ribs "under [the] left shoulder" sounds like an injury that is "too high" to affect the spleen. Your lungs are up there. Cracked ribs require diagnosis, and only a doctor or qualified professional can do this. The problem is that the cracked ribs may not be all that is wrong. And that is where they doctor is worth his weight in gold. Cracked ribs don't get a lot of "treatment" per se 'cause there isn't a lot that can be done to help them heal except for the patient to minimize movement. (No taping or wrapping.) A ruptured spleen means internal bleeding, and that is bad. Any diarrhea isn't caused from cracked ribs. That's a long stretch for a causal connection. Please go someplace and have yourself checked out. Be clear and honest about what happened so other damage can be diagnosed accurately. It's your health, and you only get one issue of it.

How do you know when the serpentine belt needs to be replaced?

Look on the back side of the serpentine belt (the side of the belt with the ribs). If any of the ribs are cracked the belt should be replaced. Take a look at the physical condition. If it is cracked on the inside (groove or V side) it needs to be replaced.

When do you replace a serpentine belt?

You normally change it when it is worn. Cracked, frayed, these are good signs that you need to replace it before it snaps. Not sure how many miles you have but sometimes it is a good idea to replace the belt tensioner as well. Look on the back side of the serpentine belt (the side of the belt with the ribs). If any of the ribs are cracked the belt should be replaced. Take a look at the physical condition. If it is cracked on the inside (groove or V side) it needs to be replaced.
