Sepertine belt wont tigthten on 1997 ford taurus 3.0 efi v6


Sometimes the idler will stick rather than respond to the spring and put tension on the belt. Try removing the belt, spraying libricant/penetrating fluid on the pivot points, and moving the idler back and forth a few times. CAUTION: the spring should want to move the tensioner so when it decides to free up it may do so in a hurry.

Need the spec on installing a tension pully for a 2003 ford taurus


Not sure what spec your looking for. I replaced the tensioner pully on my F-150 302 last year though. And basically the bolt is left hand thread and turning the bolt gives the slack in belt needed to take belt off, and put back on. Hope this helps.

Ford 2002 ford taurus belt diagram with a 3.0L v6 vulcan engine.


Here is the belt routing for the V6 Taurus. Basically the belt zig zags between adjacent pulleys, the back of the belt on the smooth pulleys and the inside on the grooved ones. Tension the belt so that you can twist the belt 90 deg on its longest run without too much force. Hopefully this helps you.

GENERAL/Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
A. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
B. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool, Or Wrench OR Ratchet, Rotate/Move the Tensioner USING THE AVAILABLE NUT (on the Pulley or Arm Base) OR the OPENING (3/8ths or 1/2 inch square opening) rotating the Tensioner Pulley/Arm - moving it away from contact with the belt and towards the area where the belt is not in contact with the Tensioner Pulley. The Tensioner is spring loaded, and is hard to rotate/move.
C. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
D. DO NOT quickly release the Tensioner, but gently allow the Tensioner to rest in its closed position.

Standard Rules for Installing the Serpentine Belt with Tensioners:
a. Pick a Pulley that is most easily accessed. This will usually be on top. This will be the last Pulley that the belt will go on.
b. Using the Diagram: Install the new Serpentine Belt on the remainder of the Pulleys....over, under, left right.
c. Using a Serpentine Belt Tensioner Tool or Wrench or Ratchet Tool: Rotate/Move the Tensioner Pulley/Arm "away" from Belt contact area on the Tensioner. This spring is pretty hard and with a new belt, it will be even harder to install. Rotate/Move this to as-close to the maximum allowed inorder to have enough slack in the belt to get it up and over the last pulley.
d. Using your other hand - Pull the Belt up and over the Last remaining Pulley.
e. Before releasing the pressure on the Tensioner, visually inspect the remainder Pulleys and the Belts' Positioning on them

Replace a serpentine belt on a 97 ford taurus


use a 15mm box wrench on the nut retaining the tensioner pulley to pry the tensioner 'arm' against the spring to release belt. note belt routing on decal under hood,or make a sketch,to aid in replacement.
on OHV engine rotate clockwise
on OHC rotate counter clockwise
be sure belt is completely seated on pulleys

97 Taurus Belt tensioner does not lossen the belt


There should be a square big enough to fit a 3/8" drive ratchet into on the tensioner (should be closest to the pulley), insert the ratchet into that square, then try turning the tensioner, this should release the pressure on the serpentine belt. Hope this helps.

Which is suppose to be the tension pully on a 1997 ford taurus? i need to replace the alternator and need to release the tension from the belt.


it's the round wheel that looks like it's not driving any accessory. use a 3/8 inch socket pry bar to relieve the tension so you can get the belt off..... make sure you know how to get the belt back on properly
