Usually when you panic because of a belt it's because you forgot to put one on around your waist and now your pants won't stay up. Or maybe you need to buy a new one because your diet the last few months have consisted of too many doughnuts. We can't help you complete your outfit but we can help your engine have the proper sized belt to help your engine run smoothly.
How can you tell when you need a new belt or belts? You can simply open your hood and visually inspect it or you can do the “scratch test. If you look at your belt and it is cracked, you need to replace it. Or you can take your finger nail and scratch the belt. Belts are rubber and pliable so if you scratch them when they are new, you won't leave a mark. If you scratch your belt and leave a line on it, that means it has become dry and hard; so, it need replaced. It's much better to replace it then, instead of while you are driving to an important business meeting or your daughter's soccer game.
