    i popped the good at a gas station and noticed that the power steering belt was chewed up from the engine side and my a/c belt was chewed up from the radiator side, i hope its just the big ice chunks i hit that did this or is this a common problem with a pulley?

That would be your power steering pump not a pulley

Power steering pulley or tensioner pulley?


Take the tension off the belt and then move each pulley by hand . If the tensioner pulley feels rough or makes a noise, replace it. Same goes for the power steering, although the pump may be noisy without the pulley feeling loose.

Check all of the pulleys along the belt line and verify they are all moving. This is usually indicitive of a seized pulley (i.e. Alternator, power steering, smog pump, etc.)

Without the belt do all the pulleys turn easy. Power steering, water pump, alternator, and tensioner pulley. There is probably only one way the belt will stay on but make sure you have the smooth side to the smooth pulley and the grooved side to the grooved pulleys. See if any of the pulleys have and wiggle in them.

Pretty much sounds as if the drive belt has come off the engine. When that happens, your power steering pump won't turn (hard steering), check gauges or check engine light comes on (because alternator no longer is turning, and engine will overheat (water pump not turning either).
Replace the belt and check all pulleys to make sure none are binding or loose (could be why belt came off other than failure from age...takes a minute to check and avoids problems later)

Need serpentine belt routing diagram for 1994 Dodge grand caravan


3.3L?
Looking at the engine from front (right side of the Van): Stating at the Top, Going Left to Right and Clockwise:
Over the Alternator
To under the Idle Pulley,
To Over the AC Compressor.
To the Left Side of the Water Pump.
To the Right side and Under the Crankshaft Pulley
To the Right side and Over and Down the Tensioner
To Under the Power Steering Pump
And Back up-to the Left side of the Alternator.
Advise when puting it on:
Put the Belt around everything else accept for the Alternator. After it is around all the rest of the Pulleys - Pull the belt up - tight from the Power steering Pump and the Idle Pulley to form a loop, holding the Belt close to the Altenator Pulley.
Using the 15mm wrench or belt tensioner bar - rotate the Tensioner Pulley towards the front of the Van and then place the belt over the Alternator.
Let me know if this helped or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

It is possible that your tensioner pulley is seized and will have to be replaced as well. This happened to my 2001 F-150, the tensioner pulley seized and shredded the serpentine belt.

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee squeaking and power steering


It very well could be the pawer steering pump. But to isolate the squeking sound, take that can of wd-40 and find the idler pully and tensior pully. Spray the bearing area of both pulleys. If your bearing in those pulleys are going bad then it will make that noise. If the wd-40 quits the noise at one of those tow pulleys then you know which one to replace. If its does not, then start looking to replace the powersteering pump. I take it you have checked the power steering fluid levels and they are ok?? Also, you stated that the noise started after you bought the alternator, then try a new alternator. It might of just been a faulty alternator. Happens all the time. One last inexpensive tip is replacing all belts with new. Belts get glazed over and dirty and cause noise too. One last question. Did you make sure the belts were tight enough? Just a little variance in the belt tension can make the difference.

Steering gone heavy


Sounds like the belt that drives your steering pump is the same belt that drives your alternator, eh? Are you sure you don't have a loose, slipping, or broken steering/alternator belt? I assume you have looked under the hood, and that the engine did not die.
Check the steering fluid level, as mentioned above, and inspect the belts. Steering pumps need their fluid, BUT I Can't imagine why a low steering fluid level would cause the warning lights to come on unless a belt is at fault or the engine died. Belt could still be in place, but just sliding across the crucial pulleys. So watch it run and note if all the pulleys are turning or not. I'm betting the belt broke, slipped, or an accessory pulley locked up. Namely: steering pump or alternator.

Report back if this is not the problem please. Hope this helps. Tater Todd

How to replace belt tension pulley for dodge neon 2002


The power steering and A/C belt is tensioned by a tensioner pulley. Mine went bad and was "screaming" I thought it was the power steering pump and I replaced it only to find that it wasn't the problem. I couldn't find any bolts and deemed it too much of a problem for me to replace at home. The shop had to drop the engine and transaxle assembly from the engine bay in order to get enough room to replace the pulley. The problem with many FWD cars is having enough room to work so if you have to replace it, the engine has to move because you only have about two inches of room otherwise.
