Drive Belts

INSPECTION

See Figures 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5
Check the condition and tension of all drive belts every 12,000 miles, or at least once a year. Loose drive belts can lead to poor engine cooling and diminished alternator, power steering pump, air conditioning compressor, or emission air pump output. A belt that is too tight places a strain on the bearings in the driven component.

Two popular methods of checking drive belt adjustment are; the Belt Tension Gauge Method and the Belt Deflection Method. The former requires a special gauge and the latter requires a straight edge and scalhow to remove belts from 1994 dodge caravan 2.5 li - enlarge_icon.gif eye for measurement. The deflection methow to remove belts from 1994 dodge caravan 2.5 li - enlarge_tooltip.gif the following belt replacement instructions. A rule of thumb for checking belt tension by the deflection method is to determine the midpoint between two pulleys of the drive belt and press down at that point with moderate thumb pressure. The belt should deflect to the measurement ihow to remove belts from 1994 dodge caravan 2.5 li - 0900c15280215aef.jpgowing installation procedures.

SOURCE: How do you change the timing belt on a 1994 dodge

If this is the 3.0L double overhead cam chrysler engine it is more complicated than some of the others, After disconnecting the battery, set the timing to number one cylinder cause alignment of timing belt is critical. you have to remove all the drive belts, the a/c stuffk, the alternator, power steering stuff, ac bracket, belt tensioner, all that stuff in front of engine cause you have to remove timing cover. you need to remember where everything goes back... After you get the power steering and all that other stuff off, your next thing is to remove the crankshaft pulleys and front engine mount. Then you have to remove all the upper and lower timing belt covers & keep track of where the fastners go. Then of course you have ato losen the timing belt tensioner bolt, belt & crankshaft flange shield. Do not let the cam sprockets move, make something to hold them or buy the tool. instillation,reverse of above, timing belt tensioner counterclockwise, tighten so tht you can put belt on... belt on crank pully first, etc. timing marks on cams are triangle with scribe mark on engine block; on crank it lines up with mark on oil pump... rotate engine a few turns after installing belt so that marks line up every time again, so that you dont have to take it apart. now put all the accessory and so forth stuff back on... This is probably an all day job... Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: replacing 2000 dodge caravan timing belt - how do

rotate crankshaft in a clockwise direction until both timing marks are aligned together on both camshaft gears and the crankshaft timing mark aligns with mark on the block just behind the crankshaft gear. you may need to rotate the crankshaft gear several times before you can get all the timing marks to align. once you have done this then insert a allen wrench in the hole on the belt tensioner and a small drill bit or a small allen wrench in the smaller hole. take the largr allen wrench and apply pressure counterclockwise until the small drill bit or allen wrench slides into locking hole to hold the belt tensioner in place. install belt and release the tensioner. (note: before starting work on engine remove the negative cable from battery).

2001 ford escape serpentine belt diagram


Below are 2 diagrams for you because the Escape came with 2 different engines for this year. The first diagram is for the 2.0 liter engine and the second picture is for the 3.0 litler engine. Now as far as an adjustment, there really isn't one. If there isn't enough tension and you are sure the belt is good and the correct size but still seems to be to loose, then you will need to replace the tensioner. I hope this helps.....

How do I remove the timing belt cover on a 1994 Dodge caravan 2.5 liter engine


Below are some instructions that I hope will help. Just a hint as far as installing the belt. Before you do the final torque or the belt tensioner, you should rotate the engine (by hand) 2 revolutions to TDC and double check all your marks before puting the cover back on.

Serpentine belt diagram for a 2003 Chevy unpalatable 4.3


Pop the hood of the car and locate the serpentine belt routing diagram. The diagram on the 2003 Chevrolet Impala is on top of the fan shroud. The diagram will be a picture of all of the accessory pulleys and how the serpentine belt is routed among the pulleys. This diagram will give you the exact direction for routing the new belt onto the pulleys. If you cannot find a serpentine belt routing diagram, take a notepad and pen and draw out the exact routing diagram of the old belt across the pulleys.

  • 2 Locate the serpentine belt tensioner. It is located below the alternator on the left front side of the engine. The tensioner on the 3.4 liter, 3.5 liter and the 3.9 liter engines will require a 3/8 ratchet to release the belt tensioner. The 3.8 liter engine will require a ratchet and a 15 mm socket for the belt tensioner. Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise to loosen and remove the belt from the belt tensioner pulley.
  • 3 Slide the old belt from the belt tensioner pulley. Remove the belt from the remaining pulleys and pull the belt from the engine compartment.
  • 4 Route the new belt across the crankshaft pulley first. The crankshaft pulley is the big pulley on the bottom of the engine in the center. Then route the serpentine belt across the remaining pulleys as directed by the serpentine belt routing diagram. Leave the belt tensioner pulley for last.
  • 5 Rotate the belt tensioner clockwise again to relieve the tension and slide the new belt across the top of the belt tensioner pulley. Release the belt tensioner and the belt will tighten up as the tensioner applies pressure to the belt. Make sure the new belt is properly seated in all the pulleys.
  • 6 Crank the engine and inspect the belt again to make sure that it stays seated in the pulleys.
