Hate to tell you uninformed individuals but ALL General Motors vehicles have only ONE drive belt on the engine.. He says He "cut the a/c belt and drove 200 miles home" If that was the case he over heated the engine so bad it will be burning more oil than 70s vintage 2 smoker.or had the pressed in valve seats fall out from the heat and destroy the engine..... Sounded like horse pukey to me but I only work at a GM dealership so maybe I'm all wet.

I feel sorry for the parents of the 16 year old kid that will end up with that thing in 5 years.

Especially after begging for a "4-wheel drive to hual my dirt bike"! C-mon! I got an "A" in P.E.!!!!

Actually, there is a seperate belt for the AC that is behind the serpentine belt. I still don't believe he drove that thing home though.
