Adjust tension on fan belt 91 geo storm


Posted 3 time now (STORM is, a Isuzu Impulse)
and not ONE TIME>>" direction for loose. easy !


the early 1991, was 1.6L and has no SERP
end SERP:
they run old fashion V belts, did you even look first to see what is there?

its not a serp, in 1991.
but many posters here get year wrong, and that.
ISUZU engines per this list
1.6 L 4XE1 DOHC I4 (US, Canada only) 12valve
1.6 L 4XE1W turbo DOHC I4, 16valve.
1.8 L 4XF1 DOHC I4
the fan V belt , IIRC is the water pump,fan and alternator V belt.
if that is the belt you are alluding to then the alternator
pivots and adjust to tension it.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RwPFTGnb5NI

now ill quote the fsm on the 1.6L with v belts.
here we go, what you mean by fan , my guess is Alternator belt, its called that because the ALT is the adjustment.



Loosen the component-to-mounting bracket bolts.

Use a belt tension gauge (J-23600-B or equivalent) to determine proper belt adjustment; place the gauge at the center of the belt between the longest span.

Applying belt tension pressure on the component, adjust the drive belt tension to the correct specification:

For 1990 and 1991 vehicles, adjust the power steering pump belt to 145 lbs on vehicles with A/C or to 90 lbs on vehicles without A/C.

For 1990 - 1992 vehicles, adjust a new alternator belt to 140-180 lbs or a used belt to 110-150 lbs.

For 1992 power steering pump belts and 1993 vehicles, adjust the belt so that 22 lbs of thumb pressure produces the specified belt deflection at the center of the belt, between 2 pulleys. Under proper belt tension a new belt should deflect about 0.31-0.47 in. (8-12mm) or a used belt about 0.28-0.43 in. (7-11mm).

While holding the correct tension on the component, tighten the component-to-mounting bracket bolt.

When the belt tension is correct, remove the tension gauge."
end quote, if not clear after Ive posted all 3 engines, say so or ask a question.

Alternator


First you need to remove the serpintine belt or alternator belt. If it is a serpintine locate the tension pully(the one that doesn't look like it does anything) place a wrench over the pully bolt and pull while removing the belt. Most generaly all alternators have two bolts holding them in. Remove both bolts. and remove alternator on some vehicles you need to remove the top engine mounts to remove the acctual alternator. make sure you if you do this you put a jack under the bngine block. NEVER ON THE OIL PAN. After that simply remove the old alternator and replace it with the new one reinstall the serpintine belt as instructed on either the underside of your hood or where the hood latch is.

I am try to replace the serpintine belt for the power steering on


This answer is for a 2003 Toyota Camry listed by the Asker under the 2001 Toyota Avalon Category

Click on the following direct Link. It has the Serpentine Belt Diagram.

Standard Rules to Removal the Serpentine Belt with a Tensioner:
1. Find the Tensioner(s). (See Diagrams on Link)
2. 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.
3. Remove the loosened belt off one of the other more easily accessed Pulleys.
4. 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

Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel Free to contact me at FixYa.Com!

Steps to replacing the serpintine belt


release tension on belt by:
-put a socket/breaker bar or ratched on the tensioner pulley bolt and use it to relieve tension on the belt
-slide belt off tensioner pulley. replace with new belt in same pattern across all pulleys and again relieve tension on the tensioner puller to slide the new belt back on
--you may need to remove the bolt on the tensioner closest to the pulley (i don't know just judging by the picture i found)
---if you don't know what the tensioner looks like look up the part on autozone's website for a picture you can match on your car

I had 2003 Toyota Camry 4 cylinder in for


While it is a possibility, having the tensioner lose tension seems more probable that it locking up as the mechanics have stated. You seem to know what you are talking about, so why not try throwing a wrench on it and turning it towards the serpentine belt? Then you can see for yourself if it has seized or not. It is the small pulley that doesn't seem to power anything like your AC compressor, alternator, fan, crank, powr streering. match a wrench to the size of the bolt and turn it, if it moves take the belt off (noting how it goes) and put the new one on saving you 280 dollars.

Replace serpintine belt


You shouldn't need to most of the time all you need is a 15mm wrench. Use it by turning the spring tightener inward toward the center of the motor than the belt should come off. Also when you take it off make sure you know how the belt goes around the pulleys so everything will work together like normal. when putting the belt on you should use the wrench to turn the tightener back inward and slip the belt back on and make sure it looks just like the old one when its on.
