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.

    It has 106,000 miles on it. The place I called is saying that they recommend I replace the water pump and drive belt at the same time. Am I getting scammed on this? They have not even looked at it yet...
