The belts in your 4Runner connect your engine to many of the components you use every day such as your air conditioner, battery (via the alternator), power steering and cooling system. As such, you may experience a dead battery, difficulty steering, overheating, etc. that might be due to a worn belt, not a faulty component! If your 4Runner is one of those Toyotas that shrieks horrendously when it runs, you likely have a worn belt, bad tensioner or both.
