Hair Braids And Car Repairs

June 15, 2022

And then there was a loud bang and the AC quit working!

My daughter was describing her most recent car trouble. We were getting ready for a family vacation. She planned to drive her own car to Palisade State Park in Southern Utah. The day before she was running errands and heard the bang and the AC quit.

Naturally she brought it my house. Daddy’s Garage. It turned out that she had a broken serpentine belt. The serpentine belt transfers power from the engine to other things like the alternator, the water pump and the air conditioning compressor.

My daughter has long beautiful hair extensions. Her broken serpentine belt bore an uncanny resemblance to her hair extensions.

Fortunately a serpentine belt is not particularly expensive or difficult to replace.

After a trip to the auto parts store and a few minutes under the hood, she was good as new.

Other than the heat, it wasn’t a bad way to spend part of an afternoon.

Stay safe
