Pulley sticking on driverside of 04 dodge ram 1500
Looking at the engine the larger pulley on the driverside of the engine is sticking and the belt is going across it squealing...the other pulleys are rolling fine. what is the name of the large pulley and what would be causing it to stick?

The biggest pulley on driverside except water pump, is the power sterring pump... maybe you've experienced an hard sterring, do you? check at your power sterring fluid level. if not the power sterring one, if located on driverside top of the engine that is the a/c compressor pulley. to check if the compressor still working just put the hvac selector on defrost or turn on the a/c. if the problem is, you'll probably need a a/c service.

You will need a serpentine belt tool to release tension from belt. There should be a sprung loaded tensioner pulley ( on a leveler bolter to block) . The routing is printed on a sticker in the engine bay.
Hello. Looking at your engine from the FRONT of your truck. Starting at the very bottom at the harmonic balancer...Your serpentine belt goes from the balancer (to the right) outside the next two pulleys. The third is inside the pulley, outside the fourth and fifth, then inside the last one to the outside of the balancer. I hope this helps, good luck, and..

your water pump and serpentine belt both need to be replaced. the reason it's not as hot on the highway, is because of the revolutions of the pulley on the w pump circulate faster. also because of this your belt has been stretched. do it asap before you are broke down or damage is done to your vehicle.
To change the serpentine belt is very easy, If you look carefully, you will find a pulley between your alternator and air conditioning pump, this is called the tensioner, In other words the pulley that pushes down the belt between the alternator and a/c pump. Place a 1/2 drive wrench to pull the tensioner up. This will loosen the belt for replacement. Hope this was helpful
Good Luck =)
