GMC Jimmy 1998, Elite™ Serpentine Belt by Continental® ContiTech™. Continental Elite™ has you covered with quality serpentine belts that efficiently link two or more rotating shafts and feature quieter, cooler performance, greater strength, and maximum service life. Advanced tensile materials maintain tension and improve wear resistance.
- Sturdy materials maintain tension integrity during belt service life for better wear resistance
- Greater flexibility and cooler operation thanks to advanced materials
- Exceptional serpentine belt life
- Quiet Channel Technology eliminates noise associated with serpentine belt misalignment
- Designed to meet and exceed SAE J1459 specifications
A serpentine belt turns multiple peripheral devices in the engine such as an alternator, power steering and air conditioning components, etc. As the automotive industry evolved, the continuous serpentine belt configuration gradually replaced old-fashioned multiple belts system where each belt was running a different device. Not to mention the economy of room in the engine bay and easier maintenance, these alternative belts that are used in most modern vehicles also brought other benefits: they can operate under increased tension without stretching and wear out slower.
This Poly-V Serpentine Belt by Continental Elite™ is designed to run cooler and quieter, transfer power more efficiently, and last longer than the competition. It is manufactured using high-strength, advanced materials that allow for excellent wear resistance and exceptional belt life. Quiet Channel Technology minimizes noise usually caused by serpentine belt misalignment. This part successfully absorbs the shock and vibration transmitted from the pulley, allowing for more efficient operation of the whole belt drive system. Each Poly-V Serpentine Belt by Continental Elite™ is constructed to meet internationally recognized SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) standards, which ensure the safety, quality, and effectiveness of products across the engineering industry.
