    My Civic sedan, which I've owned for 10 years, has 197,300 miles as of thi

    I discovered that my air compressor belt was broken. I was able to sli
    it out, and noticed the breakage point, as well as the extensive fraying.
    This explains why my air conditioner isn't working right now.

    In addition to the obvious need to get a new belt, is there a chance tha
    my air compressor itself needs to be serviced or replaced

    Let$ hope not, but if you got ten years from that belt it didn't owe you
    anything. Too bad you don't have a USED belt to test with, in case is
    actually is the compressor's fault . . Scrap yard for $2 ?

    Of course. The reason why the compressor belt broke is that the
    compressor might have been too hard to turn, because of bad bearings or
    other problems.

    Ask about this when your belt is replaced.
