I was ramaging around in my engine bay seeing if I could find out where that metal piece had come from when I ran across something that I might be worried about. There's ice built up in the grooves of my belt, and I was wondering if that could be why it's slipping.
It's a relatively new belt.. bought it last August. THere's no cracks that I could see, but there's just a bunch of ice built up in the grooves. Being too impatient to just let the ice melt, I took the belt off and used an air compresser to blow the ice out, and on my way home drove normally. I didn't notice any slipping (but then again, I'm not really too observant.. my radio could stop working and I wouldn't notice..) But when I got back to the house I checked it again and saw that there was ice in my belt AGAIN!
Is it normal? Can I prevent this somehow?
