    Re: Serpentine Belt Shredded/radiator Has Leak Now

    First you have to figure out what caused the serpentine belt to shred. Sounds like something froze up. Unless it was fixed, I would guess that it will shred again. Remember that the water pump is not driven off of that belt. The water pump drive belt is on the back side of the engine. Is it turning OK? Is the tensioner providing enough tension? Thermostat OK? Purge line clear? Cap holding pressure?
