The 3.3L & 3.8L engines are driven by single serpentine belt. The belt tension is maintained by an automatic tensioner. The belt operates the alternator, water pump, air conditioner and power steering.
Raise the front of the vehicle and safely support it with jack stands. This is not essential but makes it easier to remove the splash shield in the next step.
Remove the right front splash shield.
Use an open end wrench to rotate the bolt clockwise on the tensioner which releases the tension on the belt. A socket will be too long and the socket wrench will bear against the wheel well preventing adequate rotation. The belt routing diagram is located on the care frame near the front of the hood on the passenger side.
Remove the belt and install a replacement.
Proper belt tension is maintain by dynamic tension
Reinstall the right front splash shield then lower the front of the vehicle.
Note: It is best and saves time to use a serpentine belt tool kit . It costs about $30.00.
I don't imagine hey could damage the head from changing a motor mount. However you have reason to have caution; why suddenly does it need a a head gasket? What reason is give? (is there old leakage they can point out?) Your correct about the oil and also to look for white smoke. In the head they wish to replace the gasket on, what does a compression test say? I'd proceed with caution? Does the van run rough yet or was this corrected? How did it run prior to their work?
Your earth is bonding properly. Make sure you have a good bond that is fixed either to your chassis, with all rust, sealent and other cotings are removed frois should dolve your problem.m the fixing. Th
I figured out that there are two rubber grommets that hold the light assembly in place. Access to the grommets is easy as you just open up the taligate and you can see them located on the inside of the rear area of the van. All you do is take a pair of vise grips or a flat head screw drive and pull or pry the gromments our of their holes. ( I prefer using the grips, no slippage while prying) the old light will drop out of the slot. Remove the wiring harness from the old light as well as the light sockets, incert the sockets into the new light, replace the bulbs into the sockets, then re-connect the wiring harness. Place the new light into it's place on the outside of the vehicle and replace the rubber grommets. Close the tail gate and Voila, your done! Hope this helps some else.
