You have a tensioner pulley, should be top one on the your left when standing in front of the vehicle, but check your sticker on your vehicle. Here's a link, if you scroll way down you'll see written step by step for you.

You could have a loose belt, bad pulleys, or belt tensioners. Just pull on your belts first and see if they are loose!

What is the size of a serpentine belt to a 2005 chevy tahoe 5.3 v8


It depends. Using GATES belt numbers if its a 105 amp alternator, K060923. 145 amp K060930. Be sure to replace the a/c belt and check the tensioners. A/C belt is K040378. The tensioners should move smoothly the full range, but not forward and back. Think of the tensioners as a pulley on a spring loaded arm. Up and down is good, but not side to side.

Where is the belt tensioner on a 2001 chevy tahoe


You need to remove the front belt first. Take the tension off the belt by putting a socket or wrench on the tensioner and pivot it away. I would make a quick sketch of the belt route if you don't have a diagram. The AC compressor tensioner is on the bottom and the belt comes off the same way. Installation is the reverse.

I have a 97 chevy dually and i need a diagram of how to change the serpetine belt..its a 7.4 litre


easy job all you need is a size 14 wrench and find the tensioner pully once youve done that take your wrench and put it on the nut on the front of the pully and pull upward once you see the belt to get loose enough to pull from the alternator pull it off work it in front of the fan until its out. make sure to draw a picture of the way it was routed so you can put it back on without a problem you will need to pull the tensioner while you are reinstalling the new belt so you will have enough slack in the belt to push it over the last pully. also take the old belt with you to the parts store so you can compare the size and part number from the old one. theres nothing more frustrating then to get the wrong part and figure it out when your trying to put it on

Can't get the old power steering pump off to install the new one


First of all why are you doing it? I am having an issue with my 02 Tahoe, 5.3, 4wd, that mainly when turning left, at any speed, usually when not on the gas, it is hard to turn. Feather the gas, and all is fine. Does occur to the right sometimes, but not as noticeable. I did order an new pump, and am changing it Friday night, Jan 2. I will let you know if you did not already complete.

RUN THE ENGINE AND WATCH THE PULLEYS, YOU WILL SEE ONE THAT MOVES OR JITTERS, THAT IS THE TENSIONER PULLEY, U RELEASE THE TENSION WITH EITHER A WRENCH OR A RATCHET BY PULLING/MOVING THE PULLEY IN THE OPPOSITE DIRECTION OF THE BELT TENSION.
