Why does the belt on my van keep coming off or breaking/stripping off?


Check the harmonic balancer. That is the the pulley that is attached to the crankshaft. The outer ring of the pulley, where the belt rides, is pressed onto the hub of the pulley and isolated from it by a rubber bushing that separates the outer ring (belt pulley) from the inner part that is attached to the crankshaft. The rubber will dry out and shrink as it ages and the outer ring will slide in or out (front or back), causing belt misalignment. This can cause stripping and jumping off as it doesn't provide the proper path for the belt. The new balancer is fairly easy to install, and they only cost about $60.00 USD. You need a harmonic balancer puller to remove it, but most auto parts stores will provide a loaner for the DIYer. Here is a picture of the one that goes on your Montana.....

2008 pt cruiser - check engine light came on, within minutes it started to "power down" and and died. Won't start. What could cause this? BTW have changed spark plugs, camshaft sensore, cranks


My PT did that when my timing belt broke. It cost $500.00 to replace it. If it is broken, be ready to have some motor work done. I had to have to values replaced at a cost of $900.00. If your timing belt is not broken then check the alternator and battery. I was riding down the road and my PT shut all the way down and would not start. I had to leave it beside the road. It was my alternator. It gave me no warning.

Serpentine belt tore while driving bmw e38


The top small pulley backed it's self out. The problem is in most cars the pulleys are reverse threaded so this wont happen, in ours not so much. The pully spins loose with the turn of the belt so it has to be tightened way down. IT's a pain. Here is a diagram I found and You need a 15mm wrench, which doesn't just come in most sets. Good Luck

The book says "Using a 15 mm socket or wrench on bolt attaching drive belt tensioner pulley, rotate drive belt tensioner clockwise. Make sure spring keeper engages into slot." I would put a socket on the 15 mm pulley bolt and a long handle for leverage. Thats one tight spring.

Is 80000 miles the correct mileage for changing the timing belt(or chain} on a 2006 kia sedona lx v6 van? thanks


The 3.8 liter in the 2006 actually has a timing chain not a belt. So the chain doesn't need to replace what you may run into down the road is the tensioners having a problem as their is basically 3 chains in that engine. I would still take chains over belts any day though.
thank you and enjoy,
Lee

The serpentine belt seems missaligned as it goes from the crank pully over the tentioner and down to the power stearing pully. the belt ride the tentioner towards the outside.


The tensioners have always been a problem on the mini vans,if everything else that the belt rides on looks good then its probably the tensioner

My belt tore, and my engine wont start now?


I think the crank sensor is on a bracket next to the crank pulley. Did the belt break a wire to the sensor or break the sensor when it came off.
