The belt that runs the water pump on 1995 Auora

I noticed today that the pully on the camshaft is in bad shape looks as if the belt got hot and it melted on the pully, my question is is there a special tool required to remove the pully? And is replacing the belt a difficult thing to do.

    The belt was broke and the tensioner pully itself is bad the groves on it looks like the belt got hot and melted on it and the other pully loks as if its riding on the camshaft it's the same way the groves where the belt rides looks like the belt melted it or just plain burned the groves up

    Does the water pump itself run off the camshaft on this engine i was told at auto zone that it's a Northstar engine? first engine iv'e encountered where the water pump is on the opposite side of the engine that the accesory belts are on.

Looks like the belt got hot??? You mean there are shreds of belt material all over the place? If so you have a locked pully somepalce. Replacing the belt is easy, find the diagram of the belt system under your hood. Find the pully that is the tensionor pully. Fine the correct wrench, remove tension, slip of belt from one pulley. remove belt completely, then, since you have shredded belt material, spin each pulley and see which one isn't turning easily. All the pullies will spin easily execpt for the crank. If you have one that's not, well, that one is shot. Needs to be replaced. And if may not just be the pully, might be the accesory which the pulley sits on. Example, water pump, altenator, etc....

Replace water pump 1995 oldsmobile aurora

I did a 2001 and it wasn't too bad. You need a special tool to remove the pump from the water jacket. I just rented it from Autozone for free.
Don't let is go too long. I let mine go until the bearing froze up. Then it damaged the belt and pully running off the cam. Cost me another 200.00 in parts.

Which pulley is the water pump on a grand am 2003, Car has a really bad squeeking problem and believe its the water pump.

Water pump should not squeek,even if its going bad. It may be your Idler or tensioner pully.If you look at the pullies and see where the belt has beed running and were it is running now,it may tell you the one you want to replace.If you can't tell that way you can remove the belt and spin them by hand.Had a car once thought it was the Alt. but ended up just being the belt.Well good luck and hope you figure it out.

How to set the timing on a 1995 chrysler new yorker

There is no way to set the timing on this vehicle. Everything is computer controlled. The timing is controlled by readings from a combination sensors on the engine. The main sensor responsible for the timing is the CAM Position Sensor. This isn't the only sensor, just the main one. It is found on the top front of the engine, right near the coolant thermostat housing.

Noise where belt and pullys are and runs hot when air is running

By putting the air on you increase the drag on the water pump and it starts to falter. Replace the water pump and re tension all the belts.

I have a periodic squeeling noise comming from under the hood and i've noticed that the fan /pully system jumps or bucks on occasion - is that a sign that my water pump is going?

No, a sign your water pump is going would be your water pump springing a leak through the weep hole, or your engine start to run hot, fast (but that can also be caused by a thermostat, a bad sensor, or blown head-gasket).

Likely-hood is your belt simply need to be replaced, take off the accessory belt and bend it backwards, if you see deep cracks or threads the belt is bad, if you don't then it could be your tensioner pulley going out.
