You don't have to pull the engine you do have to pull all the plastic **** off the top of the motor. It is a very tight fit and is done more by feel than by sight. Once you get all the plastic off, climb up on top of the motor with a flashlight (MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE CANNOT START AT THIS TIME) stick your head down by the back side of the motor you should beable to see it by doing a little bobbing and weaving. It should be located a little right of center on the backside of the motor

Alternator belt broken. How to replace?

Hi, Installing a belt if fairly easy. If you will look under hood or around the latch you may have a picture on how to put your belt around the pulleys. This is most helpful. It is hard to explain to you on how to route this belt, but if you have to go get this belt, or you can get a ride to auto zone, they will print you out a diagram that will show you the exact routing, lets say if you have air conditioning, ECT. They have that site they call Net which will print what you need out, for no charge, so it is worth the trip. You will have to loosen the alternator bolts so it pivets back and forth. The diagram will also tell you this. Take the time to fine the auto parts store Auto Zone, you will be glad you did. It would be much easier to show you then try and explain it to you.

2004 Pontiac Grand am. Driving lastnight, oil pressure light came on, car died while driving and battery light flashed. Car wasnt making any noise, not overheating, drove normal then just died. What could...

The ECM it will kill power to the injectors if you have zero oil pressure, but even if there is only 4 psi, the car will not run. Actually, it's probably a good idea, because if oil pressure drops below 4 PSI it will kill the engine (which is a nice safety to prevent damage from low oil pressure). Inspect the wire leads to the oil pressure sending unit and if that is good, replace the oil pressure sending unit. You can pick one up at Auto Zone and should take you 15 min to replace, it's located just above the oil filter between the exhaust manifold and oil filter housing. The easiest way to get to it is from the bottom and remove the oil filter if you think you need the room, this is one of those things your going to have to replace by touch if you leave the oil filter one or you can try from the top if you have long arms. Good luck and Auto Zone will have the step by step instructions to replacing the unit.

2001 GMC Sonoma Ext cab 4.3l, quit while running

Pull plug wire and install a philips screwdriver into the plug wire get it 1/4 inch away from a good ground and crank the engine over, is there spark? if so check that you have fuel pressure buy renting a fuel pressure test kit from schucks or auto zone and turn the Key to run position with the gage hooked up, it should read 50 PSI turn key off and wait 20 seconds should still have 20 PSI of fuel pressure, if no fuel pressure check fuel pump relay, then check fuse to pump. if you have a bad relay and are not getting fuel then check the oil pressure switch to see if you have oil pressure at the switch if no pressure then the oil pressure safety switch has died and needs to be replaced and should stark after replacing. If you have fuel then check the timing to see if you slipped timing belt.
