I just now found out that Dayco did a Q&A but I like their answers and letting you know who answered. I also like the free wear gauges I just received.

Mobil should read this section and learn the CORRECT way of doing a Q&A...

I just now got around to reading the Dayco Q&A. Nicely done.

Dayco really comes across as being an outfit that employs a lot of thoughtful people. That's worth a lot to me as a consumer.

Agreed. I have been a long time proponent of Goodyear products, but when and if Dayco becomes available in my area I will certainly use them for that reason.

This is IMO, the best Q&A of the three... By far.

Wow, very nice. I used to use good year belts but i will definitely give the Dayco belts a try. I really appreciate how they answered the questions. Great job Dayco.

I was originally going to get a Gates serpentine belt for my wife's car, but decided to try one of Dayco's W belts solely because of the quality of this Q&A. So far this new W belt has silenced the chirp that the old OE belt(70,000 miles)had.

Speaking of your chirp, there are some good diagnosis videos on Dayco's site detailing the cause of certain noises, and how to fix them. Maybe you should look into it to make sure the noise stays gone.

i must of missed the answers when they came out? just got caught up and they are the most direct well answered question i have seen from a corporation. not at all afraid of letting "secrets" out.

makes me glad in the last 2 years i have purchased the following dayco products

1991 c-1500: dayco tensioner and idler pulley and belt

1999 jeep cherokee: drive right (dayco generic) serpentine belt

2006 jeep liberty: dayco "w" technology belt

I got to say I just got around to reading the Q/A. That is how a Q/A should be! In fact, I purchased your product (focus serp belt, and tensioner assembly) to support a company that still produces in the USA. I am usually a gates person.


But even getting that guy the ebay listing for the hard to find belt is great.

At the top of this page is a Dayco ad saying 'Register for a free Wear Gauge'. I click on it and do not go to any Wear gauge form? Anyone find this elusive wear gauge registration form?

It used to be there, but it's gone now. Maybe they ran out of gauges?

Q&A looks great, with what appear to be honest answers. I went with a Dayco belt and idler pulley on my Ford F250 based in part on the Q&A. No complaints so far, and I don't suspect there will be any.

Just put a Dayco serpentine belt on my 1995 Grand Marquis and the fit was perfect and it ended my belt-slippage noise. I would definitely order a Dayco belt again, especially at the price which was reasonable.

OT, but doing the serpentine belt gave me new respect for automotive engineers. How they design all of those pulleys to turn everything at the right speeds, while maintaining the needed tension etc. is very impressive. However, wish they had engineered in a little more room to work--it's lucky I have skinny arms and hands!
