Are the Acura Serpentine Belt and Timing Belt the same thing

Asked by Sep 22, 2012 at 08:08 PM about the Acura TL

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

1 Answer

No they are not, they are two separate belts. One is an external belt that drives the power steering, the A/Cond, and sometimes drives the water pump. The timing Belt drives the Camshaft and the water pump from the Crankshaft.
