Is there another word for serpentine belt? I am looking to replace my timing belt and see in the parts list that there is an ALT/PS belt and a A/C Belt. Are one of those a serpentine belt, the belt visible, I have one of them and if i dont need to buy another why do so. THANKS

You will have 3 belts. The a/c belt, the serpentine belt (p/s and alt) and then the water pump belt.

Serpentine and v-belt are often used (from my experience) for just about ANY grooved belt that winds around pulleys. Sometimes you just have to be specific with them.

I always thought there was just a timing belt and an accessory belt (ie, everything else not cam-related). The more you know...
